Ballmer at work on Microsoft restructuring, report says

Quote:
Microsoft, a software giant since the dawn of the PC era, might not be so focused on software much longer.

CEO Steve Ballmer is in the process of managing a "major restructuring" that would shift his company's center of balance, All Things Digital's Kara Swisher is reporting on Monday, citing people who claim to have knowledge of Microsoft's plans. Rather than base its business on software, as it has since its inception, Microsoft would transition to a "devices and services company," Swisher's sources say.

Ballmer might have already laid the groundwork for that transition last year when he wrote a note to shareholders declaring that "this is really a new era for our company." He pointed out in that letter that Microsoft would increasingly focus on devices and services.

I'm wondering if Microsoft is going down the Apple road of controlling software and hardware. It does work well for Apple.

Considering M$'s history with devices so far, I find this a bit frightening. Methinks Ballmer may be losing it.

8 isn't that bad and neither there UI I just learn to accept it and that is what there going to do if we like it or not

Hi there

XBOX maybe.

The market still thinks Ms is a good investment (Stocks at 52 week high)-- compare with "The Fruit Company" EPIC Code AAPL --stocks are going into terminal decline.


Todays market data for MSFT.

Cheers

The I.R.S. and the U.S. Senate looking into Apple could of made the price of stock go down.

Hi there
people like Apple (and Google and Starbucks etc) earn loads of money outside the jurisdiction of the I.R.S -- I don't think that the activities of the US Senate or the I.R.S have much influence over Apple's stock price -- what the market is looking for is the next killer piece of kit from Apple -- their phones in comparison to the Galaxy S4 and the new HTC models look decidedly pre-historic now, nobody really needs iPods any more -- even the cheapest phone has a passable music player built in and the tablets aren't selling as well as apple are hoping.

Cheers

I've heard about the Sheriff of Nottingham.
And the Duke of Earl.
And the Prince of Wales.
And the King of Pop.
But exactly who is Could of Made?
