Microsoft's Big Change

The following video is from Thursday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill, and analysts Jason Moser and Isaac Pino dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

Shares of Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) rose nearly 3% on news that the tech giant is planning a major reorganization. Microsoft will be organized around key functions rather than specific products, and the goal is a better sharing of information, better devices, and better services. In our lead story on Investor Beat, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Isaac Pino discuss how Microsoft seems to be modeling its changes on Ford Motor's (NYSE: F  ) most recent reorganization, and whether investors will benefit.

    Terry Myerson (former head of Windows Phone, current head of all operating systems engineering at Microsoft) may be a great guy. However, if you tried to pick the group at Microsoft with the track record of being most deaf to the needs of their market, you would have to pick the Windows Phone group. When Microsoft has to pay Nokia billions of dollars to use their product, that's a strong hint that Microsoft is doing something wrong. I tried Windows Phone 8 a few times and I didn't like it. I use Windows so I do hope Microsoft will get their act together.
