A lot has changed in our tech lives since counter-terrorism agent Jack Bauer left the air in 2014. When "24" returns on Monday, will the show have caught up? Will Bauer torture terrorists by making them watch cat videos on his iPad? Plus, Tyson Foods reports earnings on Monday, and they're expected to grow. Chicken producers have benefitted from the rising price of beef and pork, and the apparent shift by restaurants to pitch more chicken at customers because of its lower price.
