Sports betting site Ladbrokes is taking bets on who the next Microsoft CEO will be.
While on the surface (pun intended) it is absolutely ridiculous it is pretty interesting to see who they have as possible favorites. They have put together a list of all the possible contenders for the Microsoft job.
Some of the contenders for the gig are interesting. Stephen Elop of Nokia is in the lead at 5 to 1 (5/1).
Scott Forstall is listed as a 33/1 bet. Current Yahoo CEO Marissa Meyer is also listed at 33/1.
Too funny, Bill Gates is in at 50/1 while Tim Cook is in at 100/1. How Bizarro would that be? Cook hands over the reins at Apple to Sir Jonathan Ive (40/1) and moves to Microsoft as CEO.
Ok it will never happen.
Here’s the current list below..
