    Did your dad know it was Ballmer because he was shouting and sweating profusely?

    It hurts just to look at it!


    Especially when you think just a short time before that comment the two companies had actually been working together.

    There's tons of videos on the net with Ballmer's Monkey Dance.

    Here it is singled out: http://youtube.com/watch?v=bylDojTWfyU&search=ballmer monkey

    It's old footage that almost everyone has seen.

    The video I posted about is one I hadn't seen before (I've seen certain clips from it) but I really loved how most of the demos they showed were of Windows crashing, right on stage. The way Conan Obrien made fun of it... lol. "Who's actually in charge of Microsoft?!... oh... um..." lol

    As far as I know it did happen once at a developer preview, but they had a backup ready in case something did happen, and the show continued less than 15 seconds between the switch out. Steve even made a comment "That's why we have backups..."

    Yeah, he was showing the slideshow part of Spotlight, and it just froze. Hooray for KVM switches.


    Just finished watching the video. I really wish they hadn't used text-to-speach.

    I love how Gates kept hitting "OK" on his remote control, even though it was obvious that hitting "OK" wasn't going to do a damn thing.

    Even Bill Gates thinks "If I click it enough, something will happen."

    Or maybe he pioneered the thinking. :p
