Microsoft Big and surprising news this morning. Some considered him the crown prince of the Microsoft empire, slated to take over after Ballmer's eventual departure, but this morning, Steven Sinofsky announced his resignation from Microsoft. His role will be taken over by Julie-Larson Green. Persistent sources indicate that we're looking at a Forstall-esque situation; Sinofsky was, supposedly, not a good team player.

The word on campus is that Sinfosky wanted to take over and there were vocal investors voting blocks who would support him.

But Ballmer made it clear he was staying for the foreseeable future and so Sinfoski called it a day.
