Windows 7: Ballmer loses it over an employee's iphone

Ballmer loses it over an employee's iphone

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has pulled some crazy stunts in the past. The result is almost always poor publicity for the man and the company he represents. It's really a pity that someone as bright as Ballmer loses his cool on a regular basis. We can't say his latest antic tops the rest, but it's definitely going into the record books (especially if someone managed to film it). Yesterday was Microsoft's private company meeting at Seattle's Safeco Field. It was also the day that Ballmer snatched an iPhone from one of his peers (believe it or not, most Microsoft employees we've met have an iPhone) and didn't give it back till he was done trying to be a comedian.
"As the story goes, it happened when Ballmer was making his big entrance—slapping hands, running around, and generally whooping things up, as is his tradition at these events," TechFlash reports. "That was when he spotted someone at field level, allegedly a member of the Windows group, using an iPhone to take his picture. Ballmer grabbed the Apple device from the employee and made some funny remarks as everyone booed. Then he put it on the ground and pretended to stomp on it, before walking away. The scene was visible on the big screen, so even people in the upper deck could see what was happening. Later, during his presentation on stage, Ballmer referred to the episode again, teasing the person and making it clear that he hadn't forgotten what [had] happened."
