It must be nice to be Steve Ballmer right now. After taking over from Bill Gates as head of Microsoft, the CEO had a tough time, mainly due to the crappiness of Vista. But Windows 7 and Bing have both done wonders for his mood.
Which is clearly why he has no bones about autographing a MacBook Pro, an Apple product, when asked to by a student at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville recently.
If you aren’t aware, Microsoft and Apple are sworn enemies, although their hatred is moving from each other and aiming towards Google a little more these days. But still, theres no love lost between the two tech giants.
Not only does Steve Ballmer sign the MacBook Pro as requested, he also writes, “Need a new one?” on it. So he does have a sense of humor after all, certainly more of one than his Apple equivalent Steve Jobs.
