Teflon CEO

Only the queen has more job security: JPMorgan Chase shareholders voted Tuesday to let Jamie Dimon keep both the chairman and CEO roles, even though the banking behemoth suffered a $6 billion trading loss in 2012.

It stands to reason that, since JPMorgan Chase is too big to fail, its head honcho has got to be too big to fire.

There goes the virtual neighborhood: Teenagers are turning to Twitter because they think there are too many adults and too much drama on Facebook, a new study says.

The world's social-media innovators are now working on the next platform to which teens will flock, once their moms finally figure out how Twitter works.

Mitigating circumstances: Three former Ford Motor Co. executives have been charged with crimes against humanity in Argentina during the 1970s.

Their defense is expected to focus on the fact that while they might have targeted union workers for kidnapping and torture, they had no part whatsoever in inflicting the exploding Ford Pinto on an unsuspecting world.
