The world of technology continues to change at a record pace; and now some financial analysts are wondering how a company like Microsoft can keep evolving and stay competitive. Some technology and financial experts are even saying it could make sense for Microsoft to break-up the company into smaller, more focused and managable pieces. Tyler Simones with Northwest Quadrant Wealth Management explains: "Microsoft is a big behemoth of a company.  It generates a lot of cash, but when we look at Microsoft, we wonder how they are going to continue to grow in the future, because everything now is going to the Cloud.  People are no longer having software on their desktops. Most of our systems on our computers and most businesses now are in the Cloud and so Microsoft has to figure out a way to take advantage of that." The idea has been floating around in recent months and tech legend Bill Gates recently told shareholders there's nothing to be gained by spitting up the company into consumer and enterprise units. Simones says the stock hasn't gone anywhere in 10 years and says paying a big dividend would be one of the best things that Microsoft could do for investors.
