Microsoft Steve Ballmer's annual letter to shareholders makes it very clear Microsoft is at a point of no return - and in the middle of a transition into a hardware company. "This is a significant shift, both in what we do and how we see ourselves - as a devices and services company. It impacts how we run the company, how we develop new experiences, and how we take products to market for both consumers and businesses." Line. Sand.

I didn't confuse anything and included the source.

The rest of Wall St will agree in a few months.

1) How about linking to the actual article rather than BGR:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/adamhartung/2012/05/12/oops-5-ceos-that...

2) You said "Worst CEO in America according to Forbes" as if it were some sort of definitive piece - speculation, circle jerk followed by more BS. Sorry, that isn't a definitive critique of Ballmer but an over paid opinion writer completely lacking in delivering on real hard data to back up their statements.

Forbes is a magazine......not a research company....shocking news here so what the hell do you want me to add? A disclaimer pointing this out? Anyways in a few months the guy who wrote that will have a lot more credence than you and most tech writers. MSFT is at 29.29 and it won't be long before shareholders wish they listened to him. Worst CEO in America*

* according to jerkface who is not actually a licensed financial analyst.
