Microsoft's Steve Ballmer has sent a company-wide announcement to all Microsoft employees announcing Julie Larson-Green as the new boss overseeing Xbox products, taking over for Don Mattrick who defected recently to Zynga.

Julie Larson-Green has been working her way up the ranks in the Microsoft hierarchy with her most noticeable contribution being part of the project that brought consumers radical new design changes to Microsoft Office 2007.

If Julie Larson-Green can pull through in curing the apathy felt towards the Xbox One, she could very well be gunning for Steve Ballmer's job next - If she's successful, I'd say she deserves it!
