Two photos nicely illustrate the disaster Microsoft is today

“Steve Ballmer is chief executive officer of Microsoft,” Matthew Yglesias reports for Slate.

“He’s been in the job for some time, but he recently announced that he’s stepping down,” Yglesias reports. “The fact that Ballmer’s departure was announced without the simultaneous announcement of a successor is a good indication he was pushed out the door by the board of directors.”

Yglesias reports, “And these photos taken Sunday around noon at the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City in Arlington, Va., show why… There were zero shoppers in the Microsoft store. At noon. On a Sunday in December at peak retail shopping season.”

  1. Wow, that’s pretty pathetic and sad. It represents a true image of Ballmer’s complete cluelessness and ineptitude. I doubt he really cares though. He’ll soon be leaving with his golden parachute and living a life of ease. Once he’s gone, he will be a retired man with know prospects for future employment. Who would want to bring on a sweaty simian brute with no social skills or air of professionalism.
