    According to this article Steve Ballmer doesn't remember calling iPod users thieves. Talk about selective memory. :rolleyes:

    Dude needs a memory upgrade.

    Actually, he's blatantly admitting his comment had the effect he desired and didn't want to discuss it any longer. It was just a one-time thing to stir the pot and that's that.

    I would be running for the hills if I were him. I am totally against filing a lawsuit for every little thing, but what he did was slander.

    -An Observation

    On thing I've always though Steve Ballmer needed was...

    ...A volume control.

    Is it me? Or does it always sound like he's shouting?

    My mom used to Tele-Prompt for him and bill. And she confirms that he does always sound like he is shouting. However she say that he is a very nice guy :rolleyes:

    Not only that but photos of the guy can be downright frightening. Somebody on this forum hit it dead-center a few months back when he/she described Ballmer's appearance as resembling somebody "on a crystal meth jag."

    I've been watching Pirates of Silicon Valley in a class and I love the way the way they portray him in that movie. Basically, he is the village idiot in the movie and the more I hear from him the more it seems to fit.

    I actually think that Steve Ballmer and Dr Phil are the same person. Has anyone actually seen these 2 in the same room together. :rolleyes: Doesn't he understand that Windows users use the iPod to or are they stealers too.

    I vote for a self-destruct button. Once and for all :rolleyes:



    Stealing music is wrong, what about stealing computer time way back when? Or rifling through dumspters salvaging code? Is that OK?
