    Ballmer steps down from board, cuts last official tie with

    Steve Ballmer today cut his remaining official tie with the company he ran for 14 years, resigning as a member of Microsoft's board of directors.

    The announcement, which closes a big chapter in Microsoft's history, was expected. In February, Ballmer stepped down as CEO in favor of Satya Nadella. Since then, he has kept a low profile -- his biggest news being his $2 billion purchase of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team.
    Indeed, Ballmer referenced his new career as basketball mogul in what was framed as a "Dear Satya" letter.

    Big business as usual. Make mess, pick up pile of money, run away, to heck with anybody else.
