Weekend read: Microsoft’s lost decade

Microsoft has been having a tough time of late, with sales of both the Surface and Windows 8 reportedly below expectations. Many millions of words have been written over the years about Microsoft’s woes, but Kurt Eichenwald’s article for Vanity Fair last summer gave a particularly thoughtful, well written and absorbing account of where it all went wrong for the firm. And for that reason, it makes a great weekend read.
