Steve Ballmer has anger management issues.

(I just love those plain The Superficial headlines.)

Steve Ballmer doesn't appreciate historical irony. Throwing chairs and cursing isn't going to make the future go away. Microsoft can't compete with Apple or Google in the consumer arena aside from partnering with Dell and HP to offer lower prices than Apple. Microsoft has become the fat, dumb, stupid monolith IBM was in the early 1980s -- beholden to the enterprise market and too slow to capture the imagination and mindshare of consumers.

Steve, dump all the R&D money in Xbox while you can, leaving just a little to keep Office and Exchange somewhat current.
