Rev. Skarekroe: Well, that's kind of Ballmer's job.
What was he supposed to do? Say "Holy sh*t! There's no way we can compete with this! I can't... I... Microsoft is throwing in the towel, it's just... it's too much..." (bursts into tears).


1. Don't forget that within like 3 months Apple cut the price in half...It's not like they did that out of the goodness of their heart. Had iphone been selling like crazy at $500-$600 they would have left the price at $600.

2) Back in 2007 email/texting was still king. the speeds weren't fast enough for (quality) streaming data. The country was still in "2G"...3G wasn't around and/or just starting out...and apple just released a $600 phone that couldn't do email very well.

/Sure, in hindsight it looks stupid...at the time it was a valid statement, especially coming from the CEO of competing company.
