Steve Ballmer Wants to Fix His Legacy: Will Microsoft's Restructuring Work?

The following video is from Friday's installment of The Motley Fool's Weekly Tech Review, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Eric Bleeker and Jason Moser take a look at the biggest stories driving the tech sector this week.

Microsoft is due for a massive restructuring at the beginning of July. An anonymous employee has stated that the restructuring could be with an eye toward having Steve Ballmer rebuild his legacy as the company's CEO. With the company facing so many struggles at the moment as it works to make changes both to its Windows 8 operating system and its Xbox One gaming console to come closer to consumer demand, should investors be concerned? In this segment, Eric and Jason discuss Microsoft, and why sometimes a CEO looking to improve his or her own legacy can be far less preferable to a new CEO without a legacy to worry about.
