We were surprised enough to hear tales of J Allard possibly leaving Microsoft
, but the Wall Street Journal
is painting a bigger picture, saying "the organizational shakeup is broader than Mr. Allard's departure." We're taking that to mean there could be a larger changing of the guard here, particularly since the article is worded somewhat oddly and seems to imply the reshuffling could reach even Entertainment and Devices Division president Robbie Bach. As for Allard, WSJ
reaffirms Mary Jo Foley's earlier report that there's a strong correlation between his departure and the Courier's swan song
. An announcement pertaining to these moves is said to potentially come as early this week, so stay tuned -- this could be big.
