I see many categories such as Top Stories, News, Entertainment, Sports, etc. I don't see Technology as a category? How is Technology news or stories not considered a topic people are interested in?

Who knows how the Microsoft News team decides these things?  The option to add Technology as a News category does exist, though, by personalizing the feed:

@tomscharbach yeah, it does exist but the only problem is the way it organizes it alphabetically puts it way at the bottom of the list which just makes it a pain to get to. They really need to improve the interface. I could do various things like skip using it all together but I was posting as a suggested improvement. It's a great layout for demo's but leaves much to be desired when it comes to actually being able to use it.
