The opportunity to run a mysterious startup within Amazon.com lured Charlie Kindel away from Microsoft after 21 years during which he rose to become general manager of the Windows Phone Ecosystem. After he left in the fall of 2011 he created BizLogr, a software company that makes MileLogr, a service that turns calendar appointments into mileage reports suitable for submission to the IRS.
