What do the new provisions of the health care reform mean for insurance companies, and — more importantly — you? Gregory Warner has been parsing through the details, and discusses them with Tess. While health care is getting all the attention, millions of Americans are without dental insurance. One of them is Vanessa Romo, and she tells the story of her online trek for a dental bargain. There’s a website that allows people to compare their spending habits with their own demographic, and that could help you budget (or entice you to go on a spending spree). Michelle Maltais of the L.A. Times talks about her ‘appiphilia’ and her favorite smartphone apps, and New York Times columnist Ron Lieber wishes people listened more during concerts. Listened to our songs? Here’s the list:

  • Clean Living – RJD2Buy
