Amazon CEO Bezos is silhouetted during a presentation of his company's new Fire smartphone in SeattleBy Deepa Seetharaman and Ross Kerber SAN FRANCISCO/BOSTON (Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc's once fairy-tale ride on Wall Street has hit its most jarring bump yet. The company that for years enthralled investors with improbable growth and earned one of the technology sector's highest valuations drew widespread ire after a spectacular results letdown on Thursday. Amazon missed expectations across the board - on margins, on its net loss and on revenue. An unaccountably poor 7 to 18 percent revenue growth forecast for the typically strongest holiday quarter was the final straw for some. ...

Google CEO Larry Page just put Sundar Pichai in charge of almost everythingGoogle's Sundar Pichai, who's already responsible for overseeing Android and Chrome, is about to have even more on his plate. According to Recode, CEO Larry Page has sent a memo to employees revealing that Pichai will now lead nearly every major product division at the company. The senior executives previously tasked with heading up those efforts at Google (including new world record holder Alan Eustace) will now report to Pichai instead of Page. Since YouTube is in many ways a standalone operation at this point, Pichai won't be a middleman between CEO Susan Wojcicki and Page;

Doctors transplanted 'dead hearts' into three patients, and it workedTwo months ago, doctors in Australia transplanted a "dead heart" — a heart that had stopped beating inside a donor's chest — into a 57-year-old woman, reports the BBC. The operation, which has been deemed success, was unlike any other, because for the first time, it didn't involve a brain-dead donor who's heart was still beating.

Don’t expect game-changing improvements from Sprint or T-Mobile for at least another two yearsT-Mobile has done a lot to improve its network over the past couple of years, but even the scrappy “Un-carrier” has admitted that it would not be able to match the network quality of AT&T and Verizon unless it gets access to more low-frequency spectrum, which propagates better than high-frequency spectrum and more easily penetrates buildings. Because of this, both T-Mobile and Sprint must be disheartened to learn that the Federal Communications Commission has delayed a key spectrum auction that could have given both carriers a major shot in the arm.

Out-of-patience investors sell off AmazonNEW YORK (AP) — Amazon has long acted like an ideal customer on its own website: a freewheeling big spender with no worries about balancing a checkbook. Investors confident in founder and CEO Jeff Bezos' invest-and-expand strategy flooded into the stock as the company revolutionized shopping, upended the book industry and took on the cloud — even though its vast range of initiatives ate up all the company's profits.


(Reuters) - Consumer advocate Ralph Nader sent a letter to Apple Inc Chief Executive Tim Cook urging the company to reduce its spending on share buybacks and use the money to raise wages, the Wall Street Journal reported. "... Poverty wages and harmful conditions are a consequence of tolerating outrageous stock buybacks," wrote the five-time presidential candidate in his letter published by the Journal. ...

Conan O’Brien got into a Twitter battle with Madeleine Albright and it might be the best one everFormer Secretary Of State, Madeleine Albright may be 77 years old, but that doesn’t mean she still can’t pack a punch. On Thursday, Conan O’Brien tweeted a Halloween joke about the first female Secretary Of State, but her response to that tweet won the Internet. Here’s Conan’s initial tweet: I picked out my Halloween costume. I’m going as “Slutty Madeleine Albright.” — Conan O’Brien (@ConanOBrien) October 23, 2014 And here’s where Albright destroys him: .@ConanOBrien I’m considering going as hunky Conan O’Brien – but that might be too far fetched. — Madeleine Albright (@madeleine) October 23, 2014 It was all in good fun.

Stephen Hawking joins Facebook, promises to share work toward 'what makes the universe exist'Stephen Hawking has joined Facebook, promising to share his work toward discovering "what makes the universe exist" with his followers of his new account. "Our connections to one another have grown infinitely and now that I have the chance, I’m eager to share this journey with you." His page has also posted a video of Hawking accepting the Ice Bucket Challenge, with his three children taking the plunge on his behalf. "It would not be wise for me to have a bucket of cold water poured over me," Hawking says. The video is perhaps a fitting start given that Hawking has dealt with motor neuron disease for most of his life.

Apple just got another huge player to support Apple PayApple Pay rolled out on Monday to a great deal of fanfare, but launching the service was only half the battle. Now Apple is faced with the enormous challenge of gradually adding support for every credit, debit and gift card in the United States in the coming months.
