Marketplace for Tuesday, February 5, 2013

Dell has reached a $24 billion deal to take itself private, but what will the company do with that money? The Justice Department is suing Standard & Poors over its bond ratings in the lead up to the financial crisis. Wednesday is the big day high school football recruits send letters of intent to the universities they plan to attend and play for -- and at the center of the process: the semi-antiquated fax machine. Dan Gorenstein reports on the rise of the survivalist industry. And Kai Ryssdal talks to author Amy Webb about how she devised her own algorithm for dating and found the perfect match.
