Sure security is an issue, but blaming Apple for propagating the illegal music problem is silly. It shouldn't be an us vs. them thing anyway. If he was really concerned about the issue he'd be working *with* Apple instead of being bitter that Apple has a great thing and MS doesn't.....Billing Microsoft as the good guys and Apple the villains
Seriously, how could Ballmer say that it would be easier with WMP. This is just delusional. Just because M$ isn't dominating this one particular niche of the computer industry, does not mean that they could do it better if they were in charge. Why can't we all just get along and use the better products instead of positioning our companies in asinine directions we shouldn't be in.Sharewaredemon said:and easier, easier, easier, easier, to use," he said.
Wow - only 11 MB of music? So that's, what, 3 songs? (Just kidding.)MarcelV said:Mr. Ballmer,
Hope you will read this. Please apologize to me, you owe me one. I have an iPod, around 11MB of music files and all of them legitimate. I have no problem to send you my iPod to verify this, IF you really promise to send it back to me. Calling names and generalizing is that really the best you can do?
Maybe I shouldn't ask an apology, but should demand one.

I caught that too. I'm sure he meant 11Gb but maybe not. He may have just got it.JohnHummel said:Wow - only 11 MB of music? So that's, what, 3 songs? (Just kidding.)
Not to nit pick or anything, but last time I check on Amazon.com Windows XP Home was $99 and Panther has always been $129. (but I do agree that their OS is crap and full of bugs)dombi said:......How about taking a look into the mirror. How much do they charge for their operating system? A ton... especially considering, that it is full of bug, and does not work as advertised. Not to mention them constantly stealing ideas from others....
