Episode Description 
Does a tech entrepreneur bring a certain startup ethic to a company that fights pirates in Africa? We ask Spencer Ackerman from Wired, who wrote a story on the head of Typhon -- perhaps the first private navy of the 21st century. And, how bad are Apple's woes, really? Adam Lashinsky explains why he disagrees with those who think some bad earnings might mean the company is lost at sea, and Marketplace's China Correspondent Rob Schmitz tells us what a "supplier responsibility report" is, and why Apple is delivering them more often.
