Did the U.S. get a good deal for its shares of AIG? Did Liberty Interactive overpay for a controlling stake in TripAdvisor? And is Apple Maps causing Apple to lose face?

The following video is from Tuesday's Market Foolery podcast, in which host Rex Moore, along with analysts Joe Magyer from Motley Fool Inside Value and Jason Moser from Motley Fool One, discusses the top business and investing stories.

In this episode, the guys discuss the U.S. government's sell-off of its last shares of AIG (AIG -0.56%), and whether or not it got a good deal. Also, Liberty Interactive (QVCA) has just purchased a controlling stake in TripAdvisor (TRIP -1.50%). The guys like TripAdvisor, but did Liberty overpay? And finally, Apple's (AAPL -0.34%) Apple Maps has been dogged by controversy over inaccuracy and being incomplete. Is the company losing too much face over the issue?
