Microsoft's (MSFT) restructuring will put Skype chief Tony Bates in charge of M&A work and developer relationships, and could put Windows chief Julie Larson-Green in charge of all hardware engineering, Bloomberg reports. Also, Online Services chief Qi Li would "run an applications and services engineering unit" that includes Office, Skype, and Bing product development, and Server & Tools chief Satya Nadella would "oversee a unit focused on cloud computing" (presumably Azure), as well as corporate products. Steve Ballmer is expected to reveal the reorg as soon as next week. The report comes as Xbox chief Don Mattrick leaves for Zynga, reportedly due to discontent with his place in the new org chart.
