Microsoft's turnaround year
Originally aired: Wednesday, December 28, 2016
It was a big year for Microsoft as the tech giant found a new footing under CEO Satya Nadella, completed the largest acquisition in its history (the $26B purchase of LinkedIn), gained traction in the cloud, created a new AI division on par with Windows, Office and Xbox, and saw a double-digit percentage increase in its share price. GeekWire's news team sat down recently for a conversation about the past year in technology, and what to expect in 2017. This week we're presenting the discussion in a series of podcast episodes. Today's topic: Microsoft.
