Marketplace Tech

with Molly Wood

Marketplace Tech for Thursday, November 17, 2016

Film isn't the only medium that gets the virtual reality treatment. The best-selling author Wally Lamb has a new book called "I'll Take You There" that'll launch as part of the Metabook line — a series of works that include extras like 360 degree videos and photos. Metabook's CEO Christian Alfonsi joined us to talk about why he wanted to pursue this venture. We'll also check out reports that Snapchat's parent company has plans for an IPO that could be valued at $25 billion. Plus, as part of our "Codebreaker" podcast, we'll look at a new dating service that uses pictures of your exes to try and match you with someone who has a similar face.
