Steve Ballmer quote of the Day
Fortune elicits the quote of the day from Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft:
Do you have an iPod?
No, I do not. Nor do my children. My children--in many dimensions they're as poorly behaved as many other children, but at least on this dimension I've got my kids brainwashed: You don't use Google, and you don't use an iPod.
A billion dollar putz!
(No Google and no iPod -- that's borderline child abuse)
Perhaps this helps to explain why the offerings from Microsoft are such shite. It sounds as if arrogance is actually precluding them from doing competitive research. Gee, I wonder why Microsoft actually LOST market share in the search space last year, and why their blogging effort, My Spaces, is an MSN only ghetto.
One thing is good to know -- its not just us that gets pained by the bloatware -- at least the families of MSFT execs are suffering, also.
The sleeping giant goes on the offensive
Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft is ready to take the offensive.

re Balmer. its a lot worse then that over at the Lazy M Ranch Barry. The place has so many overlapping teams, endless idiotic meetings, micro manager/incompetent legacy execs., and a total lack of purpose beyond defending against "threats" that it can't move forward.
