Satya Nadella is Microsoft's new CEO, and Microsoft's new CEO is Satya Nadella!

Satya Nadella has officially been named as Microsoft's third CEO, following the short line of Bill Gates and, until today, Steve Ballmer. Those are some enormous shoes to fill, both figuratively and literally. He inherits an enormous task as well — to steer one of the world's largest and most important companies into the future. That Microsoft chose Nadella, a cloud and enterprise veteran, gives us our first hint at their course. But just a hint.

Facebook Lookback highlights your first and most liked moments in social — here's mine, what are yours?

I joined Facebook 6 years ago and the first photos I uploaded were of a string of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournaments and seminars I attended that year. My most liked posts were the ones congratulating my mother on her retirement from school teaching last year, the remembrance for my maternal grandmother who passed away last November, and my photo of the view from the airport hotel in San Francisco where I spent a morning blogging on the bay. I've shared photos of parties, iPhone lineups, filming on rooftops in New York, shooting CESlive in Las Vegas, and for it all, Facebook has given me a giant unicode thumbs up. That's my Facebook Lookback, the video montage they're offering in celebration of Facebook's 10th anniversary. What's yours?

How did Apple film the 1.24.14 video in 10 countries just one day? Like this!

Apple's new 1.24.14 video not only honored the Mac's 30th anniversary but showed how the iPhone was making computing even more personal. But how did Apple pull off a 15 camera crew shoot across 10 countries in just one day? Oh, and entirely on the iPhone?

The video up top shows us just exactly how. Hit play. Enjoy. And then tell me — If the iPhone can be the best camera because it's the one you have with you, why not the computer?

Flappy Bird: What's your high score?

Flappy Bird seems to have come out of nowhere to become the number one game on the App Store. With graphics that look straight out of Super Nintendo and gameplay that's as simple as it is insanely difficult, it's all anyone seems to be talking about right now, especially if they can get anything over a single-digit high score. Here's how it works — tap to flap and try to avoid the pipes. Touch a pipe and it's game over. No doubt the simplicity and difficulty is what's made Flappy Bird a phenomenon. Nothing spreads by word of mouth faster than the things we love to hate (or hate to love?) I currently max out at 3 (yes, 3!) but I've seen people get double, even triple digit scores. If you've tried Flappy Bird let me know — where does it rate on your love to hate scale? And, most importantly — what's your high score?

Where's FaceTime for Android?

That would allow third parties to create FaceTime clients for Android, Windows, BlackBerry, or any other platform. Now, 4 years later, there's still no open standard release in sight, much less cross-platform FaceTime clients. So, what happened?
