Ballmer outlines the road ahead for Microsoft Office, Skype, 'Bing Now'

Mark Hachman | July 15, 2013
Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer outlines how Microsoft plans to reinvent the future of documents, collaboration, anticipatory data, and gaming.

We've already seen some examples of this: The Live Tiles in the People app within Windows Phone and Windows 8, for example, already display the images of a user's contacts. Meanwhile, Microsoft "evolved" the Start page in Windows 8.1, sharing background images with the desktop and reworking the Apps screen.

What's clear is that Ballmer has a goal in mind for Microsoft, and this week's reorganization was simply the latest milestone on its journey. It's a rare thing for a company to outline its plans for the future, even conceptually. Time will tell, however, if it's headed in the right direction.
