Ah, Groupon – forcing us to buy stuff we don't need before noon each morning. The latest impulse buy? $50 for a "Narrated, GPS-Guided GoCar," a.k.a. those rad little yellow three-wheel rockets you see midwesterners and euro-peeps rocking between Fisherman's Wharf and The Haight on a daily basis. Yelpers seem to love them, and the first-person YouTube highlights hint at nothing but fun. The deeply discounted tour offer is available today only, so be sure to snag it while you still can.
In other Groupon news, the unprecedentedly fast-growing Chicago-based startup is reportedly in acquisition talks with Google to the tune of $6 billion. As one tweeter put it this morning: "Hey Groupon, $6 billion isn't cool. You know what's cool? Actually, $6 billion is pretty cool."
