Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has heaped extra emphasis on the company offering hardware rather than just software, describing "a fundamental shift" that could pave the way for more own-brand gadgets like Surface. Writing in a letter to shareholders, Ballmer suggested that "there will be times when we build specific devices for specific purposes" and portraying Microsoft "as a devices and services company."
