    At least no one could accuse AI of orchestrating the interview (could they?)!



    Matt Lauer and Al Roker are bigtime Apple fans. I've seen Lauer in the Apple store. Roker loves his iPhone.

    Burger King, huh?



    Maybe MS can get the MS choir of past commercials and sing the new and improved BK MS song...



    It goes something like this...



    "Hold the Malware, Hold the Viruses,

    Win 7 Registrations will just mire us.

    All we ask is that you let us

    c:/ crash it our way

    Call a Guru, call them today.

    Call a Guru, call them today...."



    MS Gurus available at all two MS stores...

    Is it just me or does this Windows guru look a bit like Kim Jong-Il?

    Ballmer actually seemed pretty tame on the Today Show!

    I just watched the Steve Ballmer interview on MSNBC with Matt Lauer. They pulled out the Dell version of the MacBook Air and Ballmer went on about how light it was.



    I would have given anything if someone could have asked him if it had a DVD drive after Ballmer pissed on the Air at MIX.

    I have a new catch phrase for that ad. "Windows 7, take a bite into the bloat!"

    Or maybe the illegitimate love child of Kim Jong-Il and Mt. T.

    I actually wouldn't mind trying that Whopper..... whoppers are so good...



    wouldn't mind trying out Windows 7 either. Will probably upgrade my XP install on the desktop to 7 to keep up with the times (now how many years behind OS X?). Not sure what to do with my XP partition on the MBP, but I haven't booted in there for over a year because of Windows authentication issues.



    I suspect Windows 7 will be a success for MS regardless of how good/crappy it is. There is a mentality building for people that "it's about time to upgrade my windows", just have to get them to think OS X instead

    Microsoft - the fast-food vendor equivalent in the software world:



    Software which satisfies your immediate needs, but leaves you with indigestion due to poor usability, frequent (sugar) crashes, and eventual clogging of the arteries requiring bypass surgery (the need to reinstall your OS due to eventually bogging your computer down to a crawl/causing system instability).

    Clearly the person in charge of the Windows 7 marketing program is a complete dolt or hates Microsoft and is trying to sabotage the product. Windows "Parties", Whoppers and Cartoons??? Seriously, what the hell is going on at Microsoft?



    Is this "marketing" supposed to influence business owners to dump XP?

    Ballmer and crew are the real "The Men who stare at Goats"!



    "This story is about what happened when a small group of men - highly placed within the United States Military, the Government, and the Intelligence Services - began believing in very strange things" - see link

    Can you imagine having to sit next to a sweating, screeching, and poo flinging Balmer on a flight from Seattle to NYC? What is that, like 5 hours?



    Since I'm sure he travels by corporate jet, fortunately we'll never have that experience.

    How about "The Seven Dwarfs"? It goes to show how desperation makes people do stupid things. I wonder how famous Burger King is in Japan.



    What's next? Strip Clubs? Truck stops? Oh! I get it. Laundromats!
