TDH – Money Speaks

A fair amount of trading and money changing hands this week as the iPhone 4S came out, and Skype is bought by Microsoft and Hulu isn’t good enough to sell. Averill was in town this week, so she sat in on the show. Congress pulls some interesting moves, and the designer of C has passed away. Our condolences go out to the Ritchie family. There will not be a show next week, since I will be in Philadelphia, but check back for our annual Halloween show!
