Tech interns at these companies make more money than interns at Amazon, Apple and even Google

Given the immense demand for tech talent in Silicon Valley, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that tech companies often roll out the red carpet for talented computer science and engineering students, often in the form of incredibly generous salaries and subsidized housing.

With the current school year coming to an end at most Universities, it’s about that time where top engineering students need to decide where they want to intern for the summer. And while one might think that companies like Apple and Google offer the most competitive compensation packages, it turns out that they’re not even close to being at the top.

As season 2 of Silicon Valley came to an end last year, fans were treated to the usual assortment of highs and lows. While Richard and the Pied Piper team were flying high after the streaming algorithm they developed managed to handle an immense amount of traffic, the season ended with Richard being removed as CEO of the company he founded.

Video: The Cast of Silicon Valley Destroys Conan in Halo 5

Conan O’Brien’s gaming videos are always entertaining and this week’s video of him playing the upcoming Halo 5 against three cast members from HBO’s sitcom Silicon Valley is no exception. Halo 5, which is still months away from being released, has a terrific looking multiplayer mode that Conan played with Silicon Valley stars  Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller and Zach Woods. Given how Conan is typically a pretty crappy gamer, you won’t be surprised to learn that he spends most of the video getting slaughtered by his rivals. More →

Watch this ridiculous speech that would make even Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley characters blush

Is parody even possible when it comes to the tech world? It’s a question that needs to be asked in the wake of a speech given this week by Justin Rosenstein, a former Google and Facebook engineer who cofounded Asana in 2008. Speaking at TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference on Monday, Rosenstein delivered a keynote that oozed with every single ridiculous Silicon Valley trope we’ve ever heard and was so hilariously self-important that we can’t even imagine Mike Judge signing off on it in his hit HBO satire Silicon Valley.
