2 Moves Microsoft's New CEO Needs to Make

Let's face it, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) has no shortage of headaches ahead of it. The company that dominated the PC era like no other (except perhaps Intel), is now facing a slow slide to irrelevance as consumers and professionals increasingly substitute their laptops and PCs for smartphones and tablets.

    Pure consumerism hubris. Microsoft should publicly state that they are focusing on enterprises and workers needing client devices for application development and other professional uses. Leave the consumers of mobile devices for browsing and content consumption to Apple and Google. The revenue and support issues are not worth the marginal returns.
