Bloomberg reporter Dina Bass apparently got to attend Microsoft’s shareholder meeting with Steve Ballmer:
Microsoft reports an annualized revenue run rate — or sales at
a certain point in time carried out to a yearly rate — for its
commercial cloud business and has said it is aiming to reach $20
billion on that basis by 2018. Ballmer, who handed the reins to
Satya Nadella in 2014, derided the use of run rate as
“We enjoy a regular dialogue with Steve, and welcome his input and
feedback, as we do from our other investors.” said Chris Suh,
Microsoft’s general manager for investor relations.
Translation: “We wish Steve would stick to basketball.”
Me, I’m enjoying this post-Microsoft Steve Ballmer. Satya Nadella probably isn’t enjoying him as much.
