More on Microsoft: 1) CIO Tony Scott is leaving to "focus on personal projects." His departure coincides with that of CFO Peter Klein, and comes 7 months after that of Windows division chief Steven Sinofsky. 2) Microsoft states Windows 8.1 will come with several new enterprise-friendly features, such as improved folder syncing and the ability to selectively wipe data. Win. 8's enterprise adoption has been low thus far, generally due to wariness over its huge UI changes. 3) Microsoft is acquiring InCycle Software's InRelease unit; InRelease creates application lifecycle management tools for .NET programming environments. 4) Acer announces the Iconia W3, the first Win. 8 tablet with an 8" display; it launches in June for $379.
