Marketplace Tech for Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
Apple's stock has been drooping since its maps fail in September -- but are things getting serious? Tim Cook may have been sitting with the First Lady during the State of the Union Tuesday, but he was also making speeches to Wall Street at Goldman Sachs' Internet and Technology conference, trying to convince shareholders that all is well. Some shareholders don't think that's true -- and are suing to get Apple to start delivering on its mountain of cash in hand. And, however you heard about the Pope's retirement this week, the technology bringing you the news was very different than the last time a pope retired, in the 15th century.
