Ballmer Is Right About the Mac
If it seems that I've been writing a lot about Steve Ballmer, it's because he's been on a whirlwind tour of speeches and interviews. Let's face it -- the man has a lot to say.
In a recent interview, Ballmer explained why I have yet to buy myself a Mac laptop (even though my three kids old enough to compute all have them). Macs are simply too expensive.
Given that PC laptops and netbook prices are falling faster than Steven Seagal box office receipts, it's no wonder that Apple sales are suddenly flat. Now that Windows 7 offers a faster, slicker, more stable PC platform, Apple really should respond.
Meanwhile, where I used to dream of a Mac lapper, I'm now jonesin' for a Windows 7 netbook. Three hundred bucks ought to get me that dream!
