A Northern California hedge-fund manager was charged Friday with making more than $900,000 on trades in Google Inc. and other technology companies based on improper tips he allegedly received from a neighbor and a business associate. U.S. authorities alleged that Doug Whitman, of Whitman Capital in Menlo Park, Calif., shared information about other publicly traded companies or made payments in exchange for the tips. He also allegedly went so far as threatening to never speak to one co-conspirator if she wasn't going to be a "slimeball" anymore, authorities said. [WSJ]
