Listeners of a certain age will remember viewfinders, those binocular-like things you hold up and look through with the circular discs of slides that flip around.

Yeah, well, could you be more old fashioned?

Mattel and Google are coming out with an update, including virtual reality and augmented reality.

Also, there’ll be a slot where you can slip your Android phone in when the thing debuts in the fall.

A mere $29.99, and its yours.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
