Officially, the Microsoft press conference Thursday in San Francisco was intended to take the wraps off the long-awaited version of its Office for iPad. While it's a big deal, it was also the first public appearance of Satya Nadella since becoming Microsoft chief executive this year. And that, as much as a product launch, was what drew dozens of reporters to a Microsoft office in the city.  Nadella, dressed in a snug, black T-shirt and speaking comfortably in front of a series of big monitors, said the event was the first in a series of opportunities he would take to begin laying out his vision for where he wants to take Microsoft.  "Our customers want to know where we're going and what is our innovation agenda," he said.  Broadly speaking, that strategy is "mobile-first, cloud-first.

Microsoft named Satya Nadella its new CEO on Tuesday, causing numerous Twitter parody accounts to immediately spring up. But one account is fooling users into believing it could be the official Nadella account. Nadella is stepping up from his role as the president of Microsoft's Cloud and Enterprise group to become the third CEO of the tech giant. On Twitter, Nadella can be found on @satyanadella , but he hasn't tweeted since the summer of 2010.
