After falling way behind Apple, RIM, and now Google in the rapidly changing smart phone arena, and with tens of billions in losses in entertainment devices, Microsoft is once again rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. Company shill Mary Jo Foley in ZDNet:
Microsoft announced that Robbie Bach, the President of the company’s Entertainment & Devices division will be retiring and won’t be replaced. Chief Experience Officer J Allard is out, too.
The move comes as the world’s largest software maker is being brushed aside by Apple Inc’s iPhone and Google Inc’s Android operating system in the fast-growing smartphone market.
The question now is, “Can Microsoft stay relevant in a technology world without Windows and Office?”
