Marketplace Tech Report for Friday, December 7, 2012

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
The first cycle of headlines were about Apple's CEO promising to make some iMac desktop computers in the USA. But a day later, some experts are realizing that a $100 million investment does not equal a manufacturing revolution. And a reason to love the tech beat: Where else would you meet a guy who used to be a senior official with the Russian Central Bank, who later moved into currency trading, but now is in Seattle trying to convert not rubles or dollars, but fake gold and diamonds from video games.

Apple brings manufacturing of Macs back to the U.S.

Apple's Tim Cook says some Macs will be assembled in America again, and a former Russian banker tries to make currency trading in video games a regular thing.
