Meet Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s anti-Ballmer

Satya Nadella wears hoodies. He understands the rules of cricket. More importantly, the newly-named Microsoft CEO understands hardware, something Steve Ballmer has struggled to convince the company, its board and investors, and indeed its OEM partners and customers, that he does over the course of his tenure. "I want us to be able to take our focus and innovation forward" Nadella said of his aims at the company where he's already spent 22 of his 46 years.

Dell Venue tablet 2013: Bay Trail keeps OEM in consumer tech

Dell Venue tablet 2013: Bay Trail keeps OEM in consumer tech

Though the company made clear that they're out on smartphones for the time being (back in 2012), Dell has been revealed to be a headliner here in 2013 for a Windows tablet running Intel's new Bay Trail processor.

Dell Deal: Business or Legacy?

Dell Deal: Business or Legacy?

The temptation to draw parallels between Michael Dell and Apple's Steve Jobs is a compelling one. Both founded technology companies that went on to great success; both left their position at the helm for some time, and then returned with great fanfare. However, Dell is not Jobs, and while the Apple CEO died leaving a vastly successful, hugely grown, and even fashionable company, Dell has struggled to do the same. Now, with Dell - along with a little financial help from some friends - wrenching back control of his eponymous company, the question remains: how much is righting the Dell ship with good business strategy, and how much is preserving the legacy of the business he gave his name.

Microsoft wants Windows commitment not Dell control tip insiders

Details on the rumored multi-billion Microsoft investment in Dell continue to emerge, with chatter of the expectations the Windows maker would have for its supposed target.
