A German court today ruled it was, in fact, legal for Germany to help bailout European neighbors Ireland and Greece. But as part of the ruling, it’ll now be harder for
other countries
who might be looking for financial help. Carol Bartz is out as CEO of Yahoo. The tech giant’s Board of Directors fired Bartz saying revenues were stagnant under her leadership. And some ex-cons might have a better shot at getting a job than the rest of us.

And here are the songs we played today:

  • Absence Heard Presence Felt – QuanticBuy
  • Take Me Back – Aloe BlaccBuy
  • The Baghdad Sun – Apollo BrownBuy
