Interesting. Very interesting. Facebook took the technology world by surprise when it announced a few weeks ago that it had purchased WhatsApp for the sweet sum of $19 billion. And now Bill Gates has his own little surprise to share in a new interview with the Rolling Stone that Redmond was also interested in...

Work on Windows never stops at Redmond. Or so we’ve heard. While select teams are working round the clock on Microsoft’s most important product, there have been exceptions to the rule. The company has shared a story talking about how it briefly halted development in February 2002. Microsoft was, without a...

Insider details are always a good read, particularly if they are as juicy as this. The world might be against Steve Ballmer, justified in many ways, but it seems that he played the part of the lone ranger in Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia’s devices and services business. This report by Bloomberg claims that...

And it is quite a read. It has been a couple of weeks since the new Redmond leader took charge, and now Satya Nadella has given his first interview, to outside media, that is. There have been a handful of in-house interviews prior to this. The New York Times got a chance for a brief chat with Nadella —...

Almost an equally important development to the announcement of the new Microsoft CEO is the fact that Bill Gates has decided to devote more time at the company. The co-founder of the Redmond Empire will now spend a third of his time at Microsoft. He will now work together with Satya Nadella as the company’s...

In this day and age of social media it is not all that hard to dig up a hundred and one things about someone. Particularly when that someone is a high-profile executive at one of the most important computing technology companies around. But with today being his first full day as CEO of Microsoft, here is a...

Today belongs to Satya Nadella. Much has been said and written about Microsoft’s new CEO, much will be said and written in the coming days. But this is another important day for another man. Microsoft’s 30th employee finished his tenure at the company after 34 incredible years. No less than 13 of these were...

There is a thing in mathematics, called corollary. Dictionaries define this as consequence, result, effect, outcome, upshot, even repercussion. So in many way, there is actually a corollary of Satya Nadella taking charge as new Microsoft CEO. Following the official announcement of the crowning, Redmond also...

Bloomberg seems to have the lowdown on an important change that is set to take place at Microsoft. The company is already going through a major transformation and reorganization process. But along with a new CEO that will take charge at the Redmond office, Bill Gates, it seems will also take up a new role at...
