Marketplace for Monday, January 7, 2013

Bank of America has reached a $10 billion loan settlement with Fannie Mae. Disney Parks and Resorts will begin to issue “MagicBands” to visitors, which will replace things like room keys and tickets and will track the movement and behavior of guests.

Meanwhile, commentator Beth Teitell says spoiler-free TV is getting harder to find.
