Microsoft Gives Elop Control Of Games And Hardware

Hopefully Stephen Elop can do for the games and hardware division what he did for Nokia. Wait. That's a bad example. How about when he was at, that's worse. Boston Chicken? Damn. frown

Stephen Elop may not be Microsoft's new CEO, but the former head of Nokia is not going unrewarded for bringing the phone manufacturer into the Microsoft fold. According to an internal memo, Elop will replace Julie Larson-Green as the head of Microsoft's Devices and Studios business, putting him in charge of Xbox, Microsoft Surface, and Microsoft's game development efforts, in addition to the new cellular handset business.
