On ATC: Twins fever, online gambling and workplace snooping

Posted at 4:06 PM on October 2, 2006 by Bill Wareham

How about those Twins? Hard to imagine a more thrilling end to the regular season than what we saw yesterday, what with the division title coming down to extra innings in Detroit and the batting title coming down to Joe Mauer's last few at-bats. The Twins will hold a rally beginning at 5 p.m. at Peavey Plaza. We'll have a live report from the rally as well as Star Tribune sports writer LaVelle Neal III's analysis of the series against Oakland.

The post-season will undoubtedly prompt wagering among sports fans, from friendly bets to illegal gambling. You may have noticed billboards recently touting what appears to be one online gambling service and wondered how they get away with it, since online gambling is, after all, illegal. MPR's Martin Moylan has an explanation.

And if you thought the kind of workplace snooping that's been going on at Hewlett Packard is illegal, well think again. Jon Gordon reports that not only is much monitoring of employees legal, it goes on a lot more than many suspect.
