Never like it.
-- Microsoft today announcing a major re organization of the company to better compete against the likes of apple Google and Samsung.
In the -- -- services business we're joined by and went -- founder president Roger okay Roger you know that's -- Helen -- this morning -- but are are they just -- -- rearranging the deck chairs here on the on the Titanic had to go that far with with regards to.
What seems like a rough moved for for -- Steve Ballmer.
Right -- well you know certainly they said a large task team in front of themselves but.
Arguably they had to do something again in this is what they're doing I mean as you pointed out before they've been kind of sitting in the water to extend that ship metaphor a little bit more.
And they need to get some forward momentum so the reorganized designed to to do that they had whether it's going to be successful or not well obviously we won't know for a long time.
But that having been said I'm not a really great fan of reorganization is to begin with there's always that deck chair aspect to the men and you kind of wonder is -- I don't.
Not -- Roger -- so why not mean you got to respect Steve Ballmer because obviously he sees problems he sees problems because whether it's tablets.
Whether it's a -- windows operating systems aside I mean they really have not been able to really breakthrough this seems that they can't move fast enough.
Against an apple against the Samsung heck apple can even move fast enough lately against Samsung so -- not been right.
Well rights also -- look into the details a little bit one of the interesting aspects is that they're putting all the hardware under one roof.
And you could say well they should have done this a long time ago so for example Windows Phone is a very different -- from windows but they are.
Coming to share more DNA with each other and ultimately one assumes they're gonna be pretty much the same thing the concept is to give the consumer.
The same experience on any screen whether it's a phone or a TV or PC so that's a good start and we'll have to see how that goes but you know it makes sense to do that you could say that.
Apparently Kevin turner studied and read a CEO at the company you know so we're really a lot of engineers and -- cannot -- -- things around but a lot of the engineers are still going to be and charges not there was a mass exodus and of talent.
What three season like this situation so it's it seems to me.
I'm sorry what happens what by Blackberry at this point and hey I will have another crazy idea -- it's been -- in about a.
All right so well so so so one of the one of the things it's sort of interesting is that there -- arranging themselves along functional lines and even though there are a lot of different lines.
Being the functional concept is sort of engineering here in human resources there and finance someplace else.
That makes some sense is re dividing things but people are used to doing.
-- people in a certain way within the organization and now it's gonna be all different than Ballmer did point out a lot of dotted line relationship so you're gonna have this direct report.
But also you're gonna have these sort of informal relationships which are actually very important that you have to under undertake as well so.
It's going to be complicated I'm not sure it's good to be any better.
But nonetheless Microsoft is doing whatever cat and to try to rearrange itself looking compete better policy.
-- bring that some fresh faces but I think that's the next question herein and in that that they run they're gonna change which they really didn't just aren't by the -- right exactly brought to thank you my pleasure.
-- -- -- OK so.
