New CEO at Microsoft

There's a new CEO at Microsoft and he is not at all like notorious extrovert, Steve Ballmer. We get the lowdown on cricket and poetry lover Satya Nadella from a woman who's known him many years - Recode executive editor Kara Swisher. And, Facebook is 10 years old. Will it last another decade? Radium One managing director Rupert Staines thinks so and tells us why.

We hear from Mattress Mack, the Texas furniture salesman who bet 1000 of his customers that the Seahawks wouldn't win the Superbowl -and lost! Despite now facing a seven million dollar bill the irrepressible Houstonite is still smiling and still optimistic that he will come up trumps in the end.

In our London studio Lars Kroijer, former hedge fund manager talks us through the themes in his book Investing Demystified with David Kuo in Singapore. And the BBC's Jonah Fisher will have all the latest business news from Yangon.
