An important meeting took place at Microsoft headquarters in which the top financial analysts sat down in order to assess the strong suits and chinks in the armor of Bill Gates’ epic organization. Steve Ballmer, the CEO who will retire by the year’s end, said that while Microsoft lacked in the mobile sector, he saw this as an opportunity instead of a risk. The takeover of Nokia was proof of this.
ZDNet reports that At Microsoft's Financial Analyst Meeting (FAM) on September 19, Myerson answered a question about the future of Windows RT, Microsoft's version of Windows for ARM. After noting that ARM devices, especially phones, have incredible battery life, Myerson noted that lines are blurring.
Microsoft is looking for a way to excel against such top players as Apple and Samsung, and Nokia is a key part of its strategy. Ballmer furthermore spoke of how during the post-millennial decade, his company was so into Windows Vista that far less attention was given towards the market for smart phones. This according to him was his greatest mistake.
Ballmer then went ahead to outline how the Windows platform was what Microsoft was all about. And today, the firm was ready to deal in phones, tablets and PCs. In other words, it was in a mood to progress and go out on a limb. He spoke of how a great job had to be done in order to succeed.
The execs meanwhile were really excited about the cloud system. The succession of the new CEO was a case in point that has been put on hold. A series of pie graphs regarding Microsoft’s business enterprise allocation were discussed. Social media was another source which was looked into. Judging from the results of the meeting, Microsoft is here to stay. And it has all the blessings of a super-genius like Bill Gates to see it through.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
