The PC market continues to die a slow death as tablets and smartphones take over, leaving Microsoft to rethink its strategies and products.

Research firms IDC and Gartner both reported worldwide PC shipments dropped 10 percent in 2013, marking the biggest decline in PC history.

"Microsoft has had to get used to a world in which they're no longer dominating the end-point device, so developing services that work on all different platforms has been really key to this," said Ed Maguire, managing director at CLSA Americas.
