Get away from me, you pig!
Donald Sterling, to his wife, in court no less.
This is starting to feel like another NBA team is slipping away from Steve Ballmer. We’ll see.
I love basketball. And I intend to do everything in my power to ensure that the Clippers continue to win — and win big — in Los Angeles.
I don’t think that’s an important topic, actually. It’s certainly not important to me. Microsoft is still like a child to me. So the fact that people are loving it, that’s all that really matters.
Steve Ballmer, when asked by Shira Ovide if he cares that he’s not getting any credit for Microsoft’s latest announcements, many of which he set in motion before he left. It’s a good answer by Ballmer, the exact way to handle such a question.
His answer about potentially buying the Los Angeles Clippers (and apparently not moving them to Seattle) is interesting too.
Steve Ballmer, 2007:
Right now we’re selling millions and millions and millions of phones a year. Apple is selling zero phones a year.
Steve Ballmer, a few months later:
It’s sort of a funny question. Would I trade 96% of the market for 4% of the market? (Laughter.) I want to have products that appeal to everybody.
Now we’ll get a chance to go through this again in phones and music players. There’s no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance.
Steve Ballmer, yesterday:
Mobile devices. We have almost no share.
