Marketplace for Monday, October 28, 2013

Talk about early adopters. Tiny kids are rivaling eight-year-olds in screen time, some are getting their own screens, and device makers are no doubt drooling over the possibilities of cashing in on the gift that keeps on giving. Plus, pending housing starts are disappointing and industrial production is up. Business spending was less than expected last week. Has the shutdown scared people that much -- or are there other dark clouds on the horizon? And finally, even some Democrats are saying the sign-up period for the Affordable Healthcare Act should be extended.
