Steve Ballmer Autographs MacBook




Steve Ballmer Autographs MacBook

Students Macbook is decorated with unusual signature

Colourful Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer signed a student's Macbook during his visit to Trevecca Nazarene University.

Apple and Microsoft are known to be arch rivals and Mr. Ballmer's dislike for the rival products are well known so this was a bit of a surprise. However there has been a thaw in the relationship between Microsoft and Apple lately with both of them coming together to battle the bigger enemy Google. Apple is even officially supporting Microsofts Windows 7 operating system on its Macs, something that would have been unthinkable in the past.

However Mr Ballmer left a cryptic message on the Mac for the student to ponder upon. Along with his signature he wrote "Need a new one ?". It is not immediately known if the student interpreted and followed Ballmer's advise.

He always had abilities to be in the news, sometimes in the wrong way.

Re: Steve Ballmer Autographs MacBook

I'm assuming he was referring to the fact that macbooks cant be upgraded beyond a certain point and also the iMac display and general problems.

In the computer world, nothing is what it seems. Hence easter eggs exist.
