Microsoft has made official its long-rumored plans for a major reorganization. CEO Steve Ballmer's plan reduces the company's number of separate business divisions and puts new focus on devices -- like the Surface tablet and the Xbox console.

And on Sunday, India's last official telegram will be sent from BSNL, the state-owned telecom company.
