Well, maybe it's not the weather, but rather a rosy offer from Microsoft that's got him moving westward. Chrysler Group's Jeff Bell, most recently a vice president of product strategy and VP of marketing before that, is leaving Chrysler for a job at Microsoft. Bell, a video game enthusiast, can be credited with Chrysler's product placement in various video games throughout the years, as well as other efforts in the realm of gamedom. No word yet on whether Bell will be involved in Microsoft's gaming side or maybe even the growing in-car application business, but he's certainly a loss for the automotive industry nevertheless.
