Microsoft’s Ballmer teases more hardware: “Fundamental shift” underway

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."
