Her husband said something about the commandment to try to live overruling others.... I think even for the very orthodox that you can do things forbidden on the Sabbath if it is a life and death situation. AND it isn't as if SHE is using the technology, she's just profitting from it. Non-Jews are using it. So in the olden days richer Jews used to employ a non-Jew to do the things they were forbidden to do on the Sabbath... turn on the lights, stuff like that.
