We're a) on a video game forum, and b) on the internet, so I'd hope you know what the Xbox and Bing are. What you might not know (but maybe could've guessed) is that neither have been very profitable for Microsoft. For a business, that's sort of problematic. Not to worry, though. With Steve Ballin'-more on the way out, Microsoft is searching for a new CEO. One of the candidates, former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop (great last name or greatest last name?), has big plans if he's placed in charge... The Verge Damn, he's a straight-shooter with upper management written all over him. How could anyone compete with that? The race is Stephen Elop-sided. It's hard to imagine Microsoft bailing out on Xbox and Bing, but there's a lot to be gained from such a move. Microsoft could boosts its earnings by 40% without these "distractions", at least according to one analyst. At the end of the day, money is money, and Stephen Elope-with-me-please is clearly in the money business. When you can't Bing It, you have to fling it. Of course, there's no guarantee that he'll become CEO or actually go through with such a move, but it's still fascinating to consider. It might sound fruity, but that's why you need a guy like Stephen Cant-elop.
