Steve Ballmer defaces fanboi MacBook

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has defaced the 
| MacBook Pro of young fanboi, and his sarcastic 
| scrawling was caught on video.
| [...]
| Thanks to AppleInsider, we learned today that 
| during a visit to Tennessee's Trevecca 
| Nazarene University for a meeting of the 
| Nashville Technology Council, Ballmer was 
| approached by a long-haired youth who politely 
| asked him to autograph his MacBook Pro.


Ballmer scrawls across a Mac

,----[ Quote ]
| Of course, this is only Ballmer's latest 
| public run-in with an Apple product. At least 
| he didn't pretend to stomp on the MacBook Pro. 
| But no doubt this incident will go down as one 
| of the greatest stunts in the history of 
| Trevecca Nazarene. Writes the unnamed student 
| in a blog post: "My apologies for the 
| impending apocalypse."

| at Microsoft doing something new. That would
| be challenging, given heâs done everything
| from field sales, to working on CE, Office and
| Windows Server. In the end, after meeting with
| CEO Steve Ballmer, he decided to leave the
| company and seek a position elsewhere.
