There weren't many Microsoft-related events in the news this week, but the firm will probably be hoping to move swiftly on from those that did hit the headlines.
The biggest story was the news that the firm is restructuring its phone hardware business, shedding 7,800 jobs in the process, mostly from the Nokia phone business acquired in 2013.
