This week, we're talking earnings again.  We've gotten some big companies reporting recently.  Last week alone, we got results from Facebook, Amazon and the parent of Google.

But this week is the big dog.  The alpha tech company.

That's right: Apple is reporting.  So we're taking a Teen Wolf-inspired look at leader of the Wall Street pack.  And because we're old, we're inspired by the 1985 Michael J. Fox movie and not the MTV TV show.

Sorry kids...

Earnings aren't the only thing out this week...we're also going to get one of the biggest economic reports.

The government is scheduled to release its monthly jobs data.  We'll take a look at the labor market and how the employment report could affect interest rates.

And as always, we howl at some of Wall Street's more obscure moons.

This week, in honor of Apple, we've got a series of stories about technology taking over our lives.  We've got a company in Wisconsin that's installing chips into their workers.  We've got federal regulators trying to get oversight of parts of the cryptocurrency market.  Meanwhile, we have a Singapore company trying to tie your Visa card with BitCoin.  And Delta Airlines is testing the use of fingerprints instead of boarding passes.
