Game-maker Zynga is bringing in some big guns to help reignite growth. Sources told Bloomberg the company is bringing on Don Mattrick, the head of Microsoft's entertainment division, as CEO. The news comes as Zynga, the maker of hits like "Words with Friends" and "Farmville" struggles to revamp. Last month, it said it would cut more than 500 jobs following a disappointing earnings report.

Meanwhile Microsoft is going corporate in a new effort to drum up interest in its surface tablet. The company is using resellers to improve sales by courting corporate customers. It's also starting a new program to provide corporate software makers with equipment and funding to get them to adapt their programs to the tablet.
