‘One Microsoft’

Steve Ballmer has “realigned” Microsoft so that it may better fit the business structure of Apple:

There will be four engineering areas: OS, Apps, Cloud, and Devices. We will keep Dynamics separate as it continues to need special focus and represents significant opportunity.

Also, this:

Going forward, our strategy will focus on creating a family of devices and services for individuals and businesses that empower people around the globe at home, at work and on the go, for the activities they value most. 

That bold was as formatted from Ballmer. Also there’s no way Tim Cook (or any other sane CEO) would bold that much text in an email that is then later posted as a Press Release. What is it, fucking amateur hour at Microsoft?1

Lots of change. But in all of this, many key things remains the same.

Like the fact that Steve Ballmer is still piloting the Costa Concordia.

Seriously though, you copy and paste an email from your CEO? Jesus.


  1. That’s a rhetorical question.
