Microsoft "It's game time for Steven A. Ballmer, Microsoft's chief executive. Microsoft disclosed a series of management changes on Tuesday that will alter the shape of its business unit responsible for products like the Zune music player, Xbox gaming console and phones. Most notably, Robbie Bach, the current head of the entertainment and devices group, will retire from Microsoft after 22 years at the company. As a result, Mr. Ballmer will take a more hands-on role in Microsoft's gadgets and games by having various division heads report directly to him." Maybe we'll finally see an Xbox that doesn't sound like a tornado. I recently finally got the opportunity to fiddle around with a PlayStation 3 (the big one), and by god, the Xbox is a joke, construction-wise, compared to Sony's beast.

I'm curious to see how this goes. I began liking Microsoft with Windows XP, moreso with Vista (I consider than their OSX 10.0-10.1, so gave them the same slack I gave Apple), and tons more with Windows 7. Likewise, I've enjoyed my Xbox and 360. I think there's a definite change going on over there (guessing its Balmer and Ray Ozzie behind a lot of it), and look forward to seeing what happens in the long run.
