PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft had its annual financial analyst meeting on Thursday, and Steve Ballmer answered questions about what the company's answer to the iPad was going to be, and whether Windows Phone 7 was going to be a part of that product strategy. He said, "We're coming . . . We're coming full guns. The operating system is called Windows." Ballmer and Microsoft so don't get it. I can't believe Steve Ballmer is making me feel sorry for Microsoft.

From cnet:

He said the task Microsoft faces is similar to the early days of the Netbook, when many of those machines were Linux-based


I can't believe he's seriously saying that.

To compete on netbooks, they had to drop price. On tablets, they don't have anything people would take for free.
