    I don't believe that anybody wants Microsoft to stop looking into new technology. Microsoft should reach out and grab as much of this new Tablet, Cell Phone market.
    The problem I'm seeing is Microsoft seem to think if it works great on a Tablet and Cell Phone they should also make us use it on a PC and Laptop.
    Ford Motor Company make trucks and car. Then they let the customer choose which one to buy.

    Sounds like a reasonable business strategy. Maybe that's why they sell so many units?

    Ballmer intends to remain on Microsoft board after end of CEO gig

    Yes, you WILL have him to kick around anymore



    Steve Ballmer may be stepping down as CEO of Microsoft, but he's not planning to let go of the reins in Redmond completely, if a recent filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission is any indication.
    In Microsoft's 2013 proxy statement, filed with the SEC on Thursday, the company's board of directors gave its recommendations to shareholders of who should be elected to the board this time around, and the list of names included both Ballmer and current chairman Bill Gates.



    That's sure to annoy some big shareholders, a few of which have reportedly been lobbying to have Gates bumped from the chairman's seat.
    Among those malcontents' gripes is said to be that Gates will have too great a role in selecting Ballmer's successor, which could mean Microsoft ends up with a new chief exec who thinks and acts too much like the old one.

    Crocodile tears for Ballmer's dinged bonus

    Microsoft CEO received 'only' 79 percent of his eligible bonus because of Windows 8/Surface RT foibles, but his bottom line still increased by $606 million

    If a person announces there going to resign as CEO.
    then the stock value goes up....

    Does that mean they have been good at there job?
