Remember Steve Ballmer? Of course you do. Of course current Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella does. Ballmer’s the largest shareholder of the company. And while you may have slights against Ballmer’s corporate management tactics, he certainly has a beef with Microsoft’s financial reporting practices.
Microsoft had its annual shareholders meeting today. The company projected an annualized rate of sales that would grow the company’s cloud business to $20 billion by 2018.
Ballmer is not happy that the Redmond giant would not disclose profit margins or sales [...]

Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 3 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand. We’d like to thank you all for participating in our question of the day, and we love your feedback so much, that we decided that since we can’t respond to ever single one of your comments, we should at least feature a couple in a weekly video.
This is the Pocketnow Daily Recap. Since we only have 3 minutes on every Daily video to go through the hottest news, the weekly recap will serve as a more extensive discussion where we also include your thoughts on the subject. Sadly, for [...]

We all know that Bill Gates is happy where he is, and doesn’t want to return to Microsoft as a CEO. He’s publicly stated it repeatedly, and that has been a fact for a little over a decade. Still, every time I go through Microsoft’s current situation, I can’t deny how much of a déjà vu this is to the story of one of Microsoft’s closest rivals.
Larry Ellison was recently in the spotlight because of his comments regarding Apple’s leadership. The now billionaire CEO that created Oracle and that made it what it is, was also Steve Jobs’ best [...]

The biggest problem with technology is that technology alone is not enough. A computer is dead without software, and software is useless without hardware that’s molded to interact with it. Imagine buying a car and getting it without a steering wheel, or having a steering wheel and no engine to power it. Either scenario is both useless, and even ridiculous by today’s standards. That said, let’s not be too dramatic, and let’s focus on the ability to buy something usable, that’s not necessarily desirable. If you’re like me and you like fast cars, [...]
