Microsoft Shares Head Up as Ballmer Heads Out - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

Steve Ballmer is calling it quits after a less-than-stellar run at the top of Microsoft. The decision to retire within the next 12 months comes as a bit of a surprise. It's just one month after announcing a plan that was supposed to put the company on a faster growth path, focusing more on mobile and cloud computing. Ballmer, however, may have missed his chance. Admitting in a statement, he would have rather waited but "we need a CEO who will be here longer term for this new direction."
