Marketplace Tech

with Ben Johnson

Marketplace Tech for Monday, July 28, 2014

With Nissan releasing its earnings following the company’s announcement that owners of its electric car, the ‘Nissan Leaf,' will pay the surprisingly low price of $5,500 for a replacement battery, we look at how Nissan managed to keep the price so low, and if the move will pay off. Plus, we talk to Ibrahim Abdul-Matin about social media apps and other ways Muslims use technology during Ramadan.  Finally, we talk to Chiara Atik about voyeurism on Venmo, a mobile banking app.
