Neelie Gets a Call from America

Here’s an interesting little tidbit: Apparently somebody from the U.S. embassy in Brussels has been hounding (sorry, lobbying) European Union competition czar Neelie Kroes to take it easy on Microsoft in the wake of the EU’s heavy fines against and general harassing of the company.

The rumor that the caller was really Steve Ballmer crank calling after quaffing a few pints of Leffe in the Belgian capital is totally unconfirmed -- especially since I just made it up.
