    Stephen Elop, former CEO of Nokia, and current head of Microsoft's Devices and Services division will be leaving Microsoft. Apparently it was simply time to go for the man who helped create the perfect conditions for Microsoft to acquire Nokia's hardware division.

    Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella has been doing some top-level restructuring at Microsoft to help get the company focused on its new vision and direction. It appears that Elop was a victim of this "restructuring."

    In a Microsoft email that was shared on Microsoft's blog, Nadella had this to say,

    It looks like Elop will not be immediately getting the boot, but will instead leave after an undisclosed "designated transition period." This departure will likely add more fuel to the fire of the conspiracy theories suggesting Elop deliberately sunk Nokia's stock in order to make them prime for a Microsoft buyout. What do you think?
