    I agree with the guy. Now I know I'm not a Ballmer fan, but honestly the guy is just a psycho (according to accounts of ms employees, and others who have had the bad luck of meeting him). While some may not think it, the fact that he never apologized for things also strikes a chord with me; I think that it's a leaders job to take responsibility for what his subordinates do, and it's their responsibility to explain things. He can go on a chair launching spree, he can curse others out... but he can't recognize mistakes, nor apologize for them? Forget about not being fit to be a leader, this guy doesn't qualify as a man.

    Careful you don't want to get sued for libel :p
    The official statement is that no chairs were thrown :D
    I agree with you but MS did everything in their power to prevent mass recalls on the 360 they also did everything in their power to hide the Xbox 1 PSU issue even giving out useless power cords to each and every registered owner.

    When it comes down to it your perception of ballmer is probably right but this isn't a japanese company, western companies don't drop everything say sorry to the public and correct things, if they had the console division would of crumbled around them.

    I don't think there is a company out there that won't try to cover up their mistakes and down play problems with their products. When they have no choice they will make it public but still down play it.

    I understand that, but he could have taken some of the responsibility.... you know what? forget it, I just don't like that psycho f*ck LOL!... and that pic that Zeus keeps using isn't helping much. Surely there must be a pic where he looks at least remotely human?

    Lol! Exactly my thought, I can't look at that pic, it keeps creeping me out. Looks like the type of guy that would crawl in your window at night and that picture is what you would see standing over you when you wake up. Then a train goes by and nobody hears your screams. I honestly think he is an eater of souls and the happy thoughts of children all over the world.

    Possibly HAIL NASDAQ?

    Even the "Your kids are safe with me... honest" look?

    Speaking of not acknowledging elephant in the room apples whole IphoneOS ecosystem is essentially a concentration camp for devs and users where there is apple's way or the highway, ffs apple even makes newspapers censor online content that goes into newspaper apps. "Welcome to 1984" slogan would be most appropriate for the next iphone launch.

    heh heh, i must have gotten at least 10 of those damned power cords with the built in circuit breakers. i still have a box of them in the garage somewhere next to all the extra ps2 duoshocks i have.

    hell i think i even have a couple of the original 'duke' xbox 1 controllers in my stashes.

    he's creepy...

    what's the deal with his tongue?....

    he isn't "hip" or "cool"... he looks like a pedo.

    he just looks like a dirty old man....creepy.
