Surveillance:
British politicians are using the Paris attacks to urge expedited passage of surveillance legislation. This could mean major changes for iMessage and Whatsapp, which currently encrypt messages.

Pandora:
Is buying streaming service Rdio. Rdio will declare bankruptcy and shut down its existing service, and Pandora will acquire much of its assets for $75 million.

Urban Outfitters:
Is purchasing Vetri, an Italian restaurant group. Investors were not thrilled with the company's decision; shares tumbled 9%.

Word of the Year:
Oxford Dictionaries' word of the year is... an emoji. 'Face with tears of joy' was the most frequently used emoji in 2015.

Quote of the Day:
"As our society continues to slip into a digitized version of itself we increasingly require the human experience that dining out provides. Restaurants remain one of the last true analog experiences." - Bo Peabody, Renzell Founder & Greycroft Partner, on why he's taking on Zagat
