Winds of change at Microsoft

It took a change of CEO but Microsoft is currently in transition mode. Executives are being moved around to new departments and Microsoft is doing “unMicrosoft things”. First example of the change seen at Microsoft: Microsoft has finally enabled the Office franchise on iOS and Android devices. Yes, you read right and it is a free app in which you can […]

My Name is Nadella, Satya Nadella

February 2014 will be a historic month in the history of Microsoft. Satya Nadella became the third CEO of the Redmond based company succeeding Steve Ballmer. Nadella is going to have his hands full as he needs to reposition Microsoft to a software company that is less reliant on enterprise software and more focused on consumer based software (hello Office […]

Windows 7 back by popular demand?

Over the weekend a very interesting story broke in technology circles. HP communicated to customers that they are able to acquire Desktop PC’s and Notebooks that have Windows 7 pre-installed as the operating system. That in itself is a big deal as it shows indirectly that the adoption of Windows 8 has been poor. Can you remember the last time a […]

Microsoft to refocus Windows

Microsoft is not going into the housing industry or starting to do renovations, but the company has a problem. It is a symptom of their lack of leadership in key verticals that they have not been able to reduce a duplication of functionality. Consider the following – Microsoft currently has 3 different operating systems. There is the maker of millions and […]

Microsoft to face its biggest changes in the next 6 months

The last few months have been interesting for Microsoft. In August, Microsoft announced that longtime CEO, Steve Ballmer will be “retiring”. The retiring in all honesty reads like a revolt against him that was driven by shareholders. Ballmer got the keys to the Microsoft kingdom from Bill Gates in January 2000,  but in reality did nothing to build on the momentum that […]

Microsoft unveils the Surface 2

Amidst their acquisition of Nokia’s phone business, Microsoft has released an updated Surface tablet. The Surface 2 is an updated version of the originally launched tablet, which is to solve Microsoft’s lack of hardware to their customers. When Microsoft initially launched the Surface range of tablets it was to enable them to compete with Apple’s dominance in the tablet vertical. However […]

Microsoft to acquire Nokia’s devices & services business

One of the worst kept secrets finally became fact yesterday. Microsoft has acquired Nokia’s devices & services business. Nokia’s device business was the one part of the business making little headway. Building on the partnership with Nokia announced in February 2011 and the increasing success of Nokia’s Lumia, Microsoft aims to accelerate the growth of its share and profit in mobile […]

Bye-bye Steve

Last week Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced that he will be stepping down in 12 months. Was he pushed out or was it his decision to leave Microsoft? I doubt that the public will ever know the truth. Maybe the autobiography he is potentially writing will provide us with some more detail. When Ballmer took over from Bill Gates as CEO, […]

Is Microsoft losing momentum with the Xbox One?

The Xbox One launch was amazing but the critics are slowly making their voices heard. The Console is “more aimed at home entertainment” and “the DRM management is extreme”. These are 2 from a variety of concerns that have been seen in the press, on blogs etc. It left me wondering if Sony’s lack of launching the PS4 was a good […]
