First, economic growth in America. GDP was quite solid as the summer wore on. More on that. And one of the most influential business tycoons in the world has come out publicly as gay: Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple. We spoke with actor and social justice advocate George Takei about the importance of Cook’s Op-ed. Plus, passengers increasingly bring their own entertainment with them aboard flights…on their mobile devices. Now, airlines are responding, possibly with a policy of BYOD: bring your own device.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
