For Marketplace, Monday, January 17, 2010

On this day celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr., we have big news stories involving technology and housing. First, we look at how Steve Jobs’ announcement that he’s taking medical leave from Apple might affect the company. We look at what the fallout might be from WikiLeaks obtaining Swiss bank account data. And we look at how the housing crisis has affected African-Americans. Are you planning to watch CNN tonight? Jennifer Collins looks at whether Piers Morgan can draw in viewers. Plus, fewer lawyers are doing pro bono work, and a report on how to financially prepare for your child’s future. Also, a Big Book feature: Find out about what was behind President Eisenhower’s famous military-industrial complex speech. Here are the songs we played:
