Marketplace Tech for Thursday, January 9, 2014

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
Earlier this week, Intel announced at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that it's getting serious about mineral sourcing. Where companies get the ingredients for our chips and our devices is kind of a dirty open secret. And until the creation of new materials, it will stay that way. But the world's largest chip maker is promising all of the microprocessors it ships this year will be free of conflict minerals.
