    Microsoft CEO, a good sport :)

    While on a visit to Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tenn., this week, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer put his John Hancock on a MacBook Pro, and the event was captured on video.

    Haha, at least he was a good sport about it!

    I don't know why people get so amazed at Ballmer signing an apple laptop. It's not like Microsoft doesn't have Office out for it or a number of other apps

    Eh, i wouldnt like someone signing on my computer. I like to keep it nice and clean. But, maybe like on the bottom of my computer wouldnt hurt. I believe i have the same one as the person had in the video. Was it a MacBookPro because thats mine.

    Yeah that would be a sight for sore eyes right there.

    Though yeah, i mean they make enough money from mac users anyways with office. And the new office 2010 will be out soon, so even more money for them.

    That indeed was pretty cool of him. Autographs are just neat regardless of who are why. I mean, I have seen sports stars and movie stars sign guitars, which have nothing to do with them.

    If you anything about Steven Ballmer, you would know he loves competition. Yes, he wants to win, but he relishes a good fight. MSFT is in this space too. Did you miss the announcements at CES? CES: HP Slate preempts Apple Tablet, Sony gives up, and more - Computerworld Blogs

    He doesn't hate the iPhone, he just hates the fact that the leadership that was in charge of the SmartPhone lost their mojo and failed to innovate. There is no doubt that MSFT is going to compete in this space with Apple. The question is will either company be successful in changing the behavior of users today? I am not sold yet. I think if the platforms that come out come with A LOT MORE STUFF, i may be compelled, but if I had to chose today, I would chose the HP running Win7 than this underpowered, overprices paperweight.
