Apple's iPhone sales beat Street but iPad volumes slide

The leaf on the Apple symbol is tinted green at the Apple flagship store on 5th Ave in New YorkBy Christina Farr and Edwin Chan SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Inc forecast a strong holiday quarter after a better-than-expected 16 percent jump in iPhone sales, and the strongest growth in Mac computer shipments in years helped the company surpass Wall Street's targets. The company on Monday projected stronger-than-expected revenue of $63.5 billion to $66.5 billion in the December quarter, when new iPads and iPhones vie with rival devices from Microsoft Corp and Inc for consumers' holiday outlays. Shares of Apple rose 1.3 percent to about $101.10 in after-hours trade. ...

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella Says Company Pays Men and Women Equally
Verifying the lack of a pay gap is difficult, however

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, who was criticized earlier this month for saying women should not ask for raises, said Monday that his company pays men and women equally.

“I checked that it is something that we are enforcing,” said Nadella, who has apologized for the earlier remarks, at a presentation in San Francisco, Reuters reports. “We are in fact in good shape. Men and women get paid equally at Microsoft.”

Nadella’s statement is difficult to verify, as Microsoft does not make its pay structure public. Nadella’s comments also seem to contradict data from the site Glassdoor, which reported — based on a very small sample of employees who voluntarily shared their salaries — that men seem to earn more than woman doing the same job. According to its figures, male senior software development engineers earn around $137,000 a year, while women with that title earn around $129,000 a year.

“We have made some progress,” Nadella said during the presentation. “We have a lot more to do.”

Uber and Lyft can both offer rides to San Francisco International Airport now
Today Lyft and Uber both announced that their car services are allowed at San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The two companies join Sidecar which announced last week that it would be delivering and picking up passengers from the airport. One odd bit of news is that Sidecar stated its Shared Rides feature would not operate out of the airport. Uber on the other hand stated today that Uber Pool, its shared-ride feature, would be available for airport trips. So now the Bay Area has even more options to get to the airport besides, taxis, BART, bus, hassling friends, etc. ➤ Lyft’s Second Airport Agreement Authorizes...
