@ Beamer, I read an article recently that tribalism is still THE issue over at MS, and was the primary failure for the Kin failing. The article described infighting among different divisions instead of working together to make a uniform product. The Kin was a couple of years ago, but I can't imagine things have changed that much.

Kin came out in 2010. Ballmer didn't have full control until 2008.

We can argue about who created that culture at Microsoft, but my friends there say Ballmer has spent a huge chunk of his time eradicating it. Mostly successfully. Even if just a necessity to move the company to one platform across all departments.
