If you buy your own health insurance, either through Obamacare or through a broker, get ready for some big hikes next year. The Obama Administration published the hefty premium increases by several of the big insurers--in some cases they are as much as 35%. The increases may be negotiated down as part of the terms of the Affordable Care Act but insurance companies say they need to increase premiums because of sweeping changes to the way health insurance is sold and priced. Apple's (AAPL) relaunch of Beats Music is said to cost $10 a month. Unlike Spotify, the new Beats Streaming music service under Aple won't have a way to listen to anything on demand for free. Google (GOOG) said 21% of its new tech hires last year were women, boosting the number of overall women in technical roles by 1%.
