» Ballmer Throws Down Gauntlet Against Apple

CRN (via GigaOm):

“But we are not going to let any piece of this [go uncontested to Apple],” shouted Ballmer. “Not the consumer cloud. Not hardware software innovation. We are not leaving any of that to Apple by itself. Not going to happen. Not on our watch.

Not on… this watch. The watch we’re watching right… now. The previous watch was more of a practice watch. Well, to tell you the truth, we were watching Breaking Bad. Kind of got addicted to it. Sort of forgot about the tablet space. And the phone space. And kind of the PC space, too. But now… consider the watching to be on. (Does the two fingers at his eyes, two fingers at Apple’s eyes thing.)
