For Marketplace, Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Ever since Facebook came onto the scene, social networking hasn't been the same, and now MySpace, the former leading website for all your Internet socializing, is moving on -- it's now calling itself a "social entertainment" website. Jennifer Collins reported on what that means. Changes are also going on over at Scott tissue paper -- think tubeless toilet paper. The company thinks it'll be a game-changer, and a planet-saver too. Game-changing news will be coming next week: there's the election, which commentator David Frum says he'll be voting Republican for; and then there's the Fed's latest decision on how to save the economy. Kai spoke to former president Jimmy Carter about his new book, "White House Diary," and also ready your letters from the past week. And here are the songs we played:

  • Son of Neckbone - Beastie BoysBuy
  • I Believe in You - Cat PowerBuy
  • Alright, Already - Combustible EdisonBuy
  • Instrumental Vision (Deep Mix) - CrocodileBuy
  • Burning - The Whitest Boy AliveBuy
