Here are four of the topics our analysts discuss on this weekend's Motley Fool Money radio show:

1. Google (Nasdaq: GOOG  ) unveiled a new way for you to make purchases with your smartphone. Can the company beat the banks in the battle for your wallet?

2. Hedge fund manager David Einhorn called for Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT  ) CEO Steve Ballmer to step down. Is Einhorn right, or is Ballmer still the best man for the job?

3. Hours after Barnes & Noble (NYSE: BKS  ) introduced a new touchscreen version of the Nook e-reader, Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN  ) unveiled a new version of the Kindle. Can anything save Barnes & Noble as it continues to struggle? 

4. Shares of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts (NYSE: KKD  ) soared this week after the company reported its strongest quarterly profit in seven years. Can the stock maintain its sweet run?

Plus, Nell Minow talks about the business of the film industry, as well as which movies you can’t miss and a couple you probably should.
