Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella: women should trust that ‘the system will give you the right raises’

You would think women in the tech industry, with its wide gender gap and considerable pay gap, would be skeptical of businesses being perfect meritocracies. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, in statements today, suggested he thinks otherwise. Addressing a group of mostly women at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, Nadella told the crowd, “It’s not really about asking for the raise, but knowing and having faith that the system will actually give you the right raises as you go along.”

“That’s good karma. It will come back,” Nadella said. “That’s the kind of person that I want to trust, that I want to give more responsibility to.”

The idea, apparently, didn’t go over so well with some members of the audience:

Patrick Modiano wins Nobel Prize in literature for his work on ‘the art of memory’

French author Patrick Modiano has been awarded the Nobel Prize in literature “for the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the occupation.” Modiano, 69, made his literary debut in 1968, with the novel La place de l’étoile, and went on to write more than 25 novels, in addition to several screenplays. Modiano will receive an award of 8 million Swedish kronor ($ 1.1 million), and with today’s announcement, becomes the 11th French author to win the prize for literature.

Memory is a recurrent theme throughout Modiano’s works, as is the city of Paris, where he grew up and currently resides. Much of his writing is of an autobiographical nature, and some of the same…

Watch the teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’

Acclaimed filmmaker Quentin Tarantino was none too thrilled when the script for his eighth film, The Hateful Eight, leaked onto the internet earlier this year. Nevertheless, the film is starting to come together in time for its scheduled release next year. We saw the film’s first movie poster just last month, and now we’re getting a taste of the film courtesy of a brief teaser trailer screened ahead of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Unfortunately the trailer hasn’t been officially posted online, but you can get a look via a cellphone-shot YouTube video. The teaser is graphical — it doesn’t contain even a second of shot footage — but that’s to be expected considering shooting has yet to begin. True to Tarantino’s cinephile roots, the…

I watched ‘The Expendables 3′ in theaters and I want my money back

On Sunday night, at 7:50PM, I walked into a theater in downtown Brooklyn, New York, to watch The Expendables 3. I’d already seen the movie, but watching a leaked version a few weeks ago made me want to see it the way it was intended, with all the spectacle and power and volume that a movie like this deserves. This movie deserves a theater experience, I thought, so I went and saw it in theaters. And I thought others might do the same.

I was wrong. Sort of. The Expendables 3 flopped this weekend, making just $ 16.2 million domestically, good enough only for fourth place in the US box office. The studio points to the 2.2 million views of the leaked copy as the culprit. But most of the leak downloads happened overseas, and The New York Times…

Tesla CEO Elon musk will appear on ‘The Simpsons’

Elon Musk seems to end up wildly successful in pretty much any venture that he’s undertaking, and it appears that success extends into fictional worlds as well. According to EW, Musk will cameo on The Simpsons in a future episode, where he’ll turn up in Springfield and somehow manage to bankrupt Mr. Burns. This won’t be the first time that Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors, has been referenced in the show — an earlier episode used his name as a body spray scent — but this will be the first time that he shows up in person.
