invisibleSHIELD case for iPadThe Official Twitter of Microsoft Corporate Communications has stated:

Steve Ballmer not speaking at Apple Dev Conf. Nor appearing on Dancing with the Stars. Nor riding in the Belmont. Just FYI.

MacDailyNews Take: They can’t even name Twitter accounts succinctly. Meanwhile, Trip Chowdhry, if there’s no Microsoft presentation at WWDC (even w/o Monkey Boy), you’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do!

As per MDN reader Mark Armstrong below, if Chowdhry got his “info” from this April Fool’s Joke article, he should change his name to Chowderhead.

[UPDATE: 5:45pm EDT: Chowdhry Says He Was Wrong; No Ballmer At WWDC]

[Thanks to MacDailyNews Reader “The Mac FAQs” for the heads up.]


  1. As long as Microsoft is #3 on that list, they’re unfortunately still relevant in the public eye. But we all know which direction they’re going. All in good time, my friends. All in good time.

  2. I simply can’t imagine Jobs allowing Ballmer to share the stage with him. A flunky, perhaps (e.g. Roz Ho), but not Ballmer himself. Jobs and Ballmer are complete opposites of each other, in personality, sense of taste, communication style, and appearance. I managed to stomach Bill Gates sitting next to Jobs on-stage, but Ballmer would be too much.
