Google Google CEO Larry Page was interviewed on Charlie Rose recently, and there was certainly some interesting stuff in there. Sadly, the interview suffers from the curse of modern journalism in that it was all a bit timid and civil (no truly harsh and confronting questions), but despite that, it's still a good watch. Two quotes from Page really stood out to me.

With Ballmer, Microsoft even celebrated the iPhone funeral in Redmond.

Ballmer is also famous for saying:

"There’s no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance."

Wishful thinking.

Ballmer is famous for being an idiot and a fanatic.
Sadly, this never prevented anyone from taking power -- quite the contrary actually.
