What is new?

A little, and not a lot.

We are looking at the stock chart because often people connect the headline to the stock chart.

The surface has done really poorly, below all expectations and the stock is up five percent this year.

Microsoft believes it might be about the surface.

They put out a big sales job.

A special event here in new york city, they have microsoft employees clapping and even screaming and shouting with excitement when they saw the different colored keyboards, and different ridiculous stuff.

There are two new surfaces.

Different operating systems.

One at 400 and $49 and the other at $899. it has a chip that allows them to do different things like improving the battery life just a little bit.

Generally, the same kind of design with the same kind of software.

Given that steve ballmer is leaving within the year, what does this mean?

In the world of wireless where you have the apple ios raking records today, selling so many computer phones, microsoft is till trying to sell computers.

The surface is them saying that we have a tablet and a phone.

Now they are saying that we have accessories.

Like a grown-up pc maker with a docking station and a car charger and a mouse.

They are announcing them today, ready in 2014. the problem is, their stuff does not work together the same way that ios does.

Any clues who will be the new microsoft ceo?

Outside sources have suggested larson green would be a good ceo.

She did not take the stage and declined our request for interviews.

They don't want her out in front of things or she doesn't want to be in front of the camera.

It's not clear she will be the person leading in the future.

One analyst said it was the worst analysts day in over a decade because the company did not have numbers to present and did not have a clear vision of what they are doing.

They didn't even know if the reorganization was going to stick under new management.

It is clear that microsoft has not decided everything about where they are going and they are not putting out these big public statements about their future.
