The 53-year-old Alabama native and self-described "son of the South", who has spoken out against discrimination of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, declared his sexual orientation in a magazine editorial, confirming a fact widely known in the close-knit Silicon Valley tech community but rarely discussed. ...

Amazon exec says 'we didn’t get the price right' on the Fire PhoneHindsight is 20-20, something Amazon now has about the launch of its first smartphone. Amazon debuted the $199 Fire Phone in June, though trimmed the price of the device to 99 cents (with a two-year contract) just two months after it went on sale, without explanation.

The latest Call of Duty trailer brings Advanced Warfare to the real worldNext week, one of the most popular video game franchises of the past decade will return with its latest entry, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It’s fair to say that the buzz has died down slightly from the record-breaking days of Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2, but Activision has a great deal of faith in Sledgehammer Games, the recently minted developer which has yet to release a full game. Call of Duty: Ghosts didn’t do much to push the series forward. Based on what we’ve seen prerelease, Advanced Warfare will, for better or for worse. The exoskeleton suit adds a new dimension to maneuverability and gunplay, giving a new audience the opportunity to learn the systems alongside series regulars. This

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Twitter Inc has sidelined the product chief it recently poached from rival Google Inc, in the latest executive reshuffle at the online messaging service, according to a source familiar with the situation.

One MCX member will bravely allow Apple Pay in its storesThe Apple Pay vs. MCX’s CurrentC war has been one of the highlights of the week, with MCX having to defend its position against Apple Pay and in favor of its own smartphones payments solution that will launch next year and will be available via its CurrentC app. MCX members, including Walmart, Best Buy, Target, CVS, Gap and many others must exclusively support CurrentC in stores, reports revealed, suggesting that a fine is involved if this contract requirement is broken. MCX sort-of denied the fines, saying there are no fines for anyone wishing to leave the MCX group. And it looks like at least one retailer wants to put this claim to the test by supporting both CurrentC and Apple Pay. FROM EARLIER: This

Why Twitter's new head of product could be the one to fix itIn the last 10 months, Twitter has lost: its chief operating officer, its chief financial officer, its head of product, its head of news, its head of engineering, and (just this week) one of his deputies. Then today came another twist: the company promoted Kevin Weil, its head of revenue products, to oversee the entire product organization. Goosing user growth is part of what the head of consumer product is supposed to do: Twitter remains difficult for newcomers to grok, and the company has experimented endlessly with tweaks to the service designed to make it more engaging.
