SAN FRANCISCO -- Is it rude when an investor in the middle of a pitch grabs your Powerpoint presentation and flips through it? "It is rude probably," colorful Silicon Valley angel investor Dave McClure said. But McClure does precisely that when British brother-and-sister team Ben and Hermione Way, cast members on Bravo's new reality television show "Start-ups: Silicon Valley," hit him up in the series' first episode to back their lifestyle and fitness company -- with cameras in tow. They brought along their "pitch deck," the Powerpoint presentation that an entrepreneur shows an investor.

SAN FRANCISCO - It was only a matter of time before reality show producers trained their cameras on Silicon Valley. High-tech's promised land has money, power and more ambition per square foot than just about anywhere on the planet. "Start-ups: Silicon Valley" is a new series chronicling the lives of six young entrepreneurs that will debut on the Bravo network Monday. But tech insiders here are fuming that the reality show is more silicone than silicon. Unlike New Jersey, which has embraced the tequila-chugging, spray-tan zeitgeist of Snooki and the 'Jersey Shore' gang, or Southern California, where every waiter is a reality-show wannabe, Silicon Valley takes itself seriously.

After just one episode, Bravo's new reality TV series on Silicon Valley has already gotten a lot of grief for how it portrays women in technology. Executive producer Randi Zuckerberg said she was aiming to get young women excited about becoming entrepreneurship and technology. Some people feel the show has missed that mark . But cast member Kim Taylor, 30, seems -- at least at the outset -- to be acting the part of female role model in tech (and less like the Silicon Valley version of "Real Housewives")

The wait for tables is getting longer at Buck's, a popular breakfast spot for the tech elite and a weather vane for the Silicon Valley economy. Here, like everywhere else, Facebook is the talk of the town. "Charles Schwab was in the restaurant the other day, and I asked him to hook me up with some Facebook shares," said Jamis MacNiven, owner of Buck's, in the wealthy suburban enclave of Woodside. "He told me even he can't get Facebook shares. " The new tech boom officially gets underway Friday when Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg rings Nasdaq's opening bell remotely from the company's Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters, launching the largest initial public offering of stock in Silicon Valley history.

Facebook Inc. on Wednesday issued its own eye-popping status update: The world's most popular social networking site had surpassed 500 million users. And now, the Internet phenomenon that has transformed how the world communicates is eyeing another distinction — connecting one out of every seven human beings on the planet. Six years after getting its start in a Harvard dorm room, Facebook said it was aiming to have 1 billion members, matching the reach of Internet search giant Google Inc. If it can keep up its current breakneck pace, a feat that would defy predictions from analysts, Facebook could reach that goal by next year.

Apple will produce its Mac mini computers in the U.S. next year, according to a report. Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook told NBC's Brian Williams this month that one of the company's computers would be produced in the U.S. next year. That fueled speculation that Apple would move its Mac Pro production to the U.S. Some media reports speculated that Cook was referring to the Mac Pro in part because it produces fewer of them compared with other lines of computers. QUIZ: Test your Apple knowledge But now Digitimes is reporting that rather than the Mac Pro, it's the Mac mini that will be coming to the U.S. Handling that production will be Foxconn, a key Apple supplier, which already has a number of manufacturing facilities in the U.S., according to Digitimes, a Taiwan-based newspaper that covers the technology industry in Asia.
