On today's edition of "MarketFoolery," the daily podcast from The Motley Fool, we discuss the following topics:

Barnes & Noble (NYSE: BKS) unveiled a new touch-screen version of its Nook e-reader. Will this help B&N cut into the market share Amazon's (Nasdaq: AMZN) Kindle has?

Costco (Nasdaq: COST) reported another set of strong earnings. Will the retailer be able to keep up its strong international sales? Listen as our analysts disagree over which big retail stock they'd rather hold for the next five years.

Do fans of Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) respond to the company's products the same way religious people respond to their faith? Our analysts discuss why Tim Hortons (NYSE: THI), among others, is a company that holds this similar type of competitive advantage.

All that, plus we pay tribute to CNBC's Mark Haines.
