Summary:

It’s a very special episode of The Gigaom Show, as Microsoft doesn’t change CEOs very often. We also tackle connected cars and mysterious slowdowns in your online video streaming services.

This week’s episode of The Gigaom Show tackles the big news of the week right up front: the ascension of just the third CEO in Microsoft’s history, Satya Nadella, to the top spot, and Barb Darrow helps us set it straight. Nadella has got a lot on his plate, but at least he doesn’t have to figure out how to make cars talk to each other (yet), something Kevin Fitchard helps us break down. And finally, we catch up with Stacey Higginbotham’s quest to expose all the crazy dealings of the broadband world with her latest installment on the growing signs that ISPs are fighting back against video providers by throttling your Netflix.
