Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer uses Apple Mac for presentation

In a Flickr photostream, “Paint.It.Black” has posted a photo showing an Apple MacBook Pro on Steve Ballmer’s lectern at a recent conference, “Business Leadership and Digital Innovation” something or other — which is obviously yet another Ballmer presentation focusing on things about which he has no clue.

This isn’t the first time Microsoft’s been caught using superior hardware, either:
Microsoft demos Windows Vista on Apple MacBook Pro – July 01, 2006

See the images here.

MacDailyNews Take: He’s probably using Apple’s Keynote, too.

MacDailyNews Note: We assume the darker area on the MacBook Pro is the shadow cast by Microsoft’s cheesy cardboard sign / Apple product shield.

[Thanks to MacDailyNews Readers too numerous to mention for the heads up.]

  1. If you compare the first slide on Steve Ballmer’s presentation to Steve Jobs presentation (use anyone), you will notice that Steve Jobs never mentions in any presentation that he is the CEO of Apple, Inc. Why? Because everyone knows who he is. But in Ballmer’s presentation, there it is: Steve Ballmer, CEO Microsoft Corp….it’s just strange.

  2. “@ …ok. Zune Tang does it better.

    You really should reconsider Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux. All three have spell checkers and allow the use of capitals.”

    I don’t think that either OS is compatible with ok’s Commodore 64.

  3. Dumbasses.. that wasn’t his laptop. Someone confirmed that who was there. It was a presenter before him, which wasn’t from microsoft.
