At is the danger on the business side of it for the new york times or any business media, out let, your integrity is important.

All right, staying with technology, the burning question in the tech world is who will take the top job as ceo at microsoft?

There was a uk-based gambling operator that are putting five to one on on the current ceo of nokia, a former microsoft executive.

There is the nokia 62% decline in market value.

Not great.

Not great when you're trying to be ceo of another company.

Especially one with a pretty vocal active investor.

You have to have the stomach for that.

I think it is going to come from inside the ranks of microsoft.

That is what i would that.

It is a continuation on of what they have been doing for a long time.

I think gates is going to reach down and find talent.

They have got some great people there, and i think they are going to want to put that thumbprint or that dna.

An xbox guy, a windows guy.

They have so many.

You need to kind of mix it up.

Ballmer ruled with an iron fist, and that is if he liked you.

That is if he liked you.

It was a tough, tough culture.

You do wonder, is this a company that has gotten too big?

A did a ton of acquisitions.

There was a call years ago for them to break up.

This is sort of a government antitrust issue.

Is this company so big that it is a monopoly?

No longer a question.

Those days are over.

You would wonder if they would have stayed more nimble and been more innovative if they were smaller.

No, they would be like google in that they were everywhere, and now they are not the much everywhere.

What they need is vision and someone with a rallying cry.

Ballmer, i like him.
