Malone, an alternate juror in Pao v. Kleiner Perkins, Caufield and Byers case and a partner at user-experience design firm Tangible UX, poses in her San Francisco neighborhood of Bernal HeightsTo some Silicon Valley watchers, the Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers gender discrimination case became a referendum on the challenging state of women in technology. The jury on Friday cleared Kleiner on all charges of gender bias and retaliation, leaving the technology community scouring the jurors for the thinking behind their decision and for clues on whether other gender discrimination cases can succeed. For Erin Malone, 51, an alternate juror who sat through four weeks of testimony but did not end up deliberating on the verdict, it came down to the credibility of Ellen Pao, 45, the plaintiff who had worked as a partner at Kleiner until 2012. Sympathetic to Pao in many areas, Malone, who designs technology allowing users to interact with apps and websites, said she herself felt she reached a "glass ceiling" when she worked at Yahoo Inc years ago.

Former Hewlett-Packard Chief Executive Fiorina listens to a question from the media after speaking at the New England Council's "Politics and Eggs" breakfast in BedfordBy Alina Selyukh and Sarah N. Lynch WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Hewlett-Packard Co Chief Executive Carly Fiorina said on Sunday the chances she would run for the U.S. presidency in 2016 were "higher than 90 percent" and that she would announce her plans in late April to early May. Fiorina, speaking on "Fox News Sunday," said she could not yet announce the bid because she was working to establish her team and put together what she described as "the right support" and financial resources. Fiorina is one of many potential Republican presidential candidates including former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Earlier this month, Texas Senator Ted Cruz became the first major figure from either political party to formally announce his 2016 presidential bid.

By Eric Auchard FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Britain's Interoute, a high-capacity data network and corporate cloud services provider, is taking on new private equity investors to fund acquisitions across Europe and the United States, the company said on Monday. Aleph Capital Partners, a UK investment firm headed by former Goldman Sachs European private equity investment chief Hugues Lepic, and Crestview Partners, a U.S. private equity firm founded by ex-Goldman colleagues, have agreed to buy a 30 percent stake in London-based Interoute.

Dancing spider-like robots are displayed at the Intel booth during the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas(Reuters) - Intel Corp is in talks to buy fellow chipmaker Altera Corp in a deal likely to top $10 billion, according to a source familiar with the matter, making it Intel's biggest purchase ever and the latest merger in the quickly consolidating semiconductor sector. The acquisition of Altera, which makes programmable chips widely used in cellphone towers, the military and other industrial applications, would underscore Intel Chief Executive Officer Brian Krzanich's determination to expand into new markets as the personal computer industry loses steam. Earlier this month, Intel slashed nearly $1 billion from its first-quarter revenue forecast to $12.8 billion, plus or minus $300 million, as small businesses put off upgrading their personal computers. Shares of Altera shot up about 28 percent after the talks were first reported by the Wall Street Journal, closing at $44.39 per share on the Nasdaq.

Apple's Tim Cook speaks out against discriminatory 'religious freedom' lawsApple CEO Tim Cook has used the editorial pages of The Washington Post to condemn laws that allow businesses to refuse service to homosexuals or other groups on the grounds of "religious freedom." Calling the legislation "something very dangerous happening in states across the country," Cook says these laws "rationalize injustice by pretending to defend something many of us hold dear. Although Indiana has been the focus of recent attention, as Governor Mike Pence signed a bill on Thursday legalizing discrimination for religious reasons, 19 other states have similar laws on the books. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed another "religious freedom" bill last year after widespread opposition from the public and companies including Apple. "America's business community recognized a long time ago that discrimination, in all its forms, is bad for business," Cook writes.

This Microsoft help page comes with a warning: 'this process requires patience'I may have accidentally stumbled into the purgatory of Microsoft online services. It all happened innocently enough: if you're anything like me, you probably set up your Xbox Live account many years ago. The Hotmail email address I chose that fateful day nearly a decade ago has since become a relic of another time, utterly swamped with spam emails and hindered by an embarrassing account name. It's with good reason, then, that I hoped to switch my Gamertag over to my primary Microsoft account, the email address that now ties together everything from my email and calendar to Microsoft Office and OneDrive.
