Microsoft officials on Thursday announced details of the latest companywide reorganization, designed to help the company make itself into a leaner, meaner devices and services machine. An original Apple computer from 1976 has sold at auction for nearly $388,000. Known as the Apple 1, it was one of the first Apple computers ever built. Bolaffi, an Italian collections company, says in a statement that it bought the computer. The seller was a retired school psychologist from Sacramento, Calif. If Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer had a twin brother, it would be his COO Kevin Turner. Like Ballmer, he stalks the stage like a hungry bear and verbally shakes the audience by the lapels into joining the war effort to beat the competition. Speaking at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference in Houston before 15,000 attendees, Turner said: "We have high respect but no fear of competitors. ... We are doubling down and making sure we are fighting and evangelizing our story." less
