Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer Talks Trash Against iOS, Android (Again)

In one opinion he is right for sure: iPhones ARE being sold for much over $1,000 in some places. That is not less crazy than Steve himself.



From the content of the article, whomever chose the photo of Balmer to accompany it did the job well. Reminds me of late night host Craig Ferguson doing his impression of Larry King. IMHO - Windows 8 (and the Windows phone) look like they are aimed at a grammar school environment with poor vision.



In a May 2012 column in Forbes magazine, Adam Hartung described Ballmer as "the worst CEO of a large publicly traded American company", saying he had "steered Microsoft out of some of the fastest growing and most lucrative tech markets (mobile music, handsets and tablets)"
Can someone tell me why Gates doesn't let him go?



Uh, he is entertained by the annual monkeyboy dance?

Dunno why, exactly Balmy Balmer is still running the company, but if I had to guess it's because they don't have anyone who would be much better. 12 years of Windows tablet attempts and it takes Apple to show them how to do it right, with predictable success. Now that they have it right in front of their noses they still can't get it right, and try to cram a bloated OS into a little tiny tablet. That 32 GB sounds like a lot until you check free space; not much more than a 16 GB iPad. To make matters worse MS tries to shoehorn a touch screen OS onto desktops - where are all the touch screens, and why would I want to?



I say keep Ballmer around!!! No need for Microsoft to have someone who knows what they're doing running the company.
