Good morning! Another overcast day here in New York. It's the kind of day where you carry an umbrella just to be safe, but you probably don't need it, so you're just annoyed to have carry something else around with you. Let's talk about the news:
2. Here's another big look at Square's finances, which are not great. It lost over $100 million last year, but the company insists it could be profitable if it wants. It says it's spending money to grow.

5. It's not really tech, but the digital media world was abuzz over the news Jill Abramson, the executive editor of the New York Times was fired. The New Yorker says she was fired, in part, because she learned she was paid less than her male predecessor, and started asking about why that was so.
7. Speaking of the NSA, here's a big Frontline documentary on it. (We haven't watched, but it's at the top of Techmeme right now, so it's probably good.)
