Exactly where the NSA wants your data: "the cloud". Ever notice how these two entities started around the same time?

When something as simple as Facebook has become a heavily-used tool in the field of background checking professionally and socially, you can easily add cloud storage as another tool against users with the original intent of helping them. I don't trust someone else or some other entity having my information and it is no longer local to only me. This has nothing to do with the tin-foil hat wearers and everything to do with history.and probability I'm not sure if this guy would be the perfect fit for a company with a track record that has looked unfavorably this long now. I wouldn't say Microsoft has become irrelevant, but too many product miscues and what has become an obvious culture of failed market products will take someone that really understands where this company is and where it needs to be. Usually promoting from within seems to be the best policy, but it would seem the best way to stem a culture slide like this would be to hire from the outside to change that formula.

Just when you thought that it could not get any more terrible than "Metro". Microsoft present you the CLOUDDDDDD.

They seriously need to stop calling everything cloud... just call it tech from the 80s.

Nadella is definitely a better choice than those alternatives listed. If it was Elop I would think in 5 years we will be talking about how Microsoft used to have 90% of the desktop market.
