Another nail in MS Windows Mobile's coffin!!
Ballmer forgets Steve Jobs statement during Macworld 97, saying for Apple to win, didn't mean MS had to lose. No matter what, I consider Apple a big winner. Just 13 years ago, it was in a state of disarray whilst MS was the defacto PC system (Win95 a huge success). Yes, Apple had some die hard fans but was in dire trouble. In just 13 years, it has not only turned things around, but entered (created!?!) new markets, re-inventing itself and it's key products (a new Mac,...
Ok, we are aware that MS is offering Apple Stores staff more money to work in it's stores, so I pose a few questions to you all. How much money would MS have to pay you to; 1. Give up your Macs, iPods and iPhones and only work with PCs, Zune, WinMobile phones from now on? 2.

Power Books are PPC based, how have you managed to get Snow Leopard to run?
What kind of software do you develop? Anything we'd be interested in purchasing? Welcome back anyway. You won't be switching back, that's one thing I can guarantee. I switched 4.5 years ago, and my only regret was not doing it earlier.
I can believe it. Whenever I'm in an Apple Store, I see machines flying out the storeroom like hot cakes from an oven. When my girlfriend was buying hers, (in Kingston-upon-Thames, UK), we were in the store for 30 minutes. In that time I counted 12 machines being sold. No wonder Apple continue to roll out new stores.
