Silicon Valley's heart still with Obama but its eyes stray
SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Silicon Valley is of two minds regarding who should be the next president of the United States.
Politically, liberal hipsters at hot Internet firms are inclined to tune into issues such as the environment and equality that put them in the camp of incumbent Barack Obama.
But executives responsible for managing profits at firms can trend more conservative in their thinking, giving appeal to Republican challenger Mitt Romney, according to industry insiders.
Despite their disappointment with the "Internet president" during his first four years in office, technology firms remain major donors to his re-election campaign.
