Good morning and welcome to 10 Things in Tech. If this was forwarded to you, sign up here. 

Let's get started.

1. Andy Jassy started as Jeff Bezos' "shadow" — then turned AWS into a $40 billion business. Plus, he was tapped as the next CEO of Amazon, a position he'll take on July 5. Take a look at how he got his start and climbed the Amazon ladder. 

2. Bill Gates hosted nude pool parties and "got drunk pretty easily," insiders say. Biographer James Wallace said Gates went to a Seattle all-nude strip club and invited dancers to come swim in his pool. Here's what else he said.

3. SentinelOne's first investor also wrote Zoom's first check without hearing a pitch. SentinelOne, which surged 17% in its first day of trading in what was likely the biggest cybersecurity IPO ever, saw support from Dan Scheinman, who blindly supported Zoom. Here's what he looks for in founders.

4. Amazon wants the FTC's new chair removed from any enforcement decisions surrounding the company.

5. AI can help reduce inequity in credit access. That's one of the many stories from a new Insider series exploring the real cost of inequity — not to be confused with inequality. Check out the full series on how inequity persists in American life.

6. Lime just debuted a new mode of ride-sharing transportation: mopeds. Lime, which is best known for its e-scooters, recently launched a moped-sharing service in NYC. Here's what it's like to use one for a day.

7. Elon Musk suggests Starlink will be available worldwide a month earlier than planned. The Tesla CEO said it could be available in August, but Musk also said Starlink will need up to $30 billion to survive, saying: "if we succeed in not going bankrupt, then that'll be great."

8. Some Uber drivers say a glitch is charging them, rather than paying them, for rides. One driver lost $50 on a single journey — so they quit the app. Get the full scoop here.

9. Google is radically changing the way you search online with the biggest search shake-up in years. We spoke with a top executive who laid out the timeline for some dramatic changes to the way people use Search. Here's what you need to know.
