Hackers are attacking iPhone and iPad users in China. They've been able to break into Apple's closed system with a new piece of "malicious software," or malware. We'll talk about the spread of the bug on today's show. Plus, with Republican gains in the Senate and some gubernatorial races, many are wondering whether attempts will be made to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Even if this is not done, there are other moves that can be taken to reduce the Act’s scope. And there's an exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York of Henri Matisse's cutouts. Matisse made many of these pieces when he was in his 80s, and that got Chris Farrell, Marketplace's economics guy, thinking about aging and creativity. More on that.
