Homeless start-ups: It’s a simple question for many entrepreneurs: “Where is your company located?” But it’s becoming more complicated for some, as even the smallest technology start-ups are spreading out across the country – a trend that creates some unique challenges not only for the firms, but for local economic development teams, too.

Moving abroad: U.S. medical device maker Medtronic Inc. on Sunday announced plans to buy Irish rival Covidien PLC for $42.9 billion, with the former moving its executive headquarters to Ireland. Why? Look no further than the two nations’ tax rates. (REU)

An expensive entree: Priceline has announced plans to purchase OpenTable for $2.6 billion in a deal that would let the travel booking company do for restaurant reservations much of what it does for hotel bookings. (AP)
