On Thursday, Microsoft and Sony made a joint announcement that they would "e xplore joint development of future cloud solutions in Microsoft Azure to support their respective game and content-streaming services."  This partnership came as a big shock: They've been fierce rivals since the first Microsoft Xbox challenged the Sony PlayStation 2 in 2001.  However, it makes a lot of sense: The next big thing in gaming is cloud streaming, and it's difficult and expensive to build a cloud platfor...

Facebook is overrun with fake accounts impersonating tech execs like Tim Cook, Elon Musk, and Sundar Pichai (FB, GOOG)

Facebook is overrun with fake accounts pretending to be famous technology industry executives. The fraudulent accounts are purporting to be everyone from Tesla CEO Elon Musk to Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

The CEO behind the smash-hit PagerDuty IPO says that she looked at 51 other chief exec roles before she chose to lead the $3.9 billion company (PD)

In PagerDuty's early days, investors passed on the idea of a company focused on developers, but many users have since told Tejada that they won't do their job without PagerDuty.
