New Microsoft CEO Announced

Listen in pop-out player

Microsoft's new CEO is announced as Satya Nadella - we look at his background and why he has asked Bill Gates to spend more time back at the company he founded. Also what started off as a university networking site has graduated to become one of the biggest businesses in the world - Facebook is 10 years old. The BBC's Theo Leggett takes us through its journey. Superstitious Malaysians pay as much as $4,000 to have their offices blessed by 'lion dancers', but the tradition is suffering from financial cutbacks. Finally the first domain name in a non-English language is released - we speak to Yasmin Omar, head of the new 'dot shabaka' domain.
