OOD DAY FOR: Financial independence, as 61 percent of entrepreneurs in a Discover survey said they wouldn’t give up the independence of running their own business for greater pay working for somebody else.

The deal will help Google push deeper into TV ad sales. “This was a missing piece of puzzle for us,” said Keval Desai, who heads Google’s TV ads-placement division. (AP in BusinessWeek.com)
