ClickZ reports on a Bloomberg story about Martin Taylor, the vice president of Windows Live and MSN marketing group has left MSN. Reportedly, Taylor was good friends with CEO Steve Ballmer and was a possible candidate in the future for that position. The ClickZ article says, "The wording of the Microsoft statement seems to imply the company, and not Taylor, made "the difficult decision to part ways."" But why then would Taylor just be appointed the VP position and credited with being the "a go-to guy for problem areas," in late March? I dunno. Interesting and I wonder what type of impact this will have on Microsoft's push into the search market.
