Microsoft's Satya Nadella will host his first press conference as CEO of the company. As its new leader, Nadella has his work cut out for him -- while Microsoft's business and cloud computing products have surged, hardware like its Surface tablet have not done so well. The new CEO might be about to announce that Microsoft Office software can now run on more devices. And it's Spring Break. That means a lot of families are spending more time together than usual. And teens have a lot of extra time on their hands to overuse technology. But parents should remember: Those living in glass houses shouldn't throw smart phones.
