John Moe, host of the Marketplace Tech Report joins us every Thursday. This week he'll talk about Nevada officials voting on whether or not to allow betting for online poker. If the state's gambling regulators decide to legalize it, Nevada will become first state to grant Internet poker licenses. He'll also discuss the recent announcement from Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood that his department doesn't support a ban of all phone use in cars. Good news for distracted drivers, bad news for anyone near those distracted drivers.
