UPDATE June 8, 2006 1:25pm

Paul Kedrosky adds to the hilarity, pointing to the infamous Steve Ballmer "monkey boy" video. (Paul thinks Ballmer must go).

Kirk (in comments) points to the antiperspirant malfunction video, while Mr. Beach points to the all time mashup classic, and my personal favorite, Ballmer’s Developers  remix.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Here is the original, perhaps even more disturbing, Balmer video.

    And here’s the antiperspirant malfunction video.

    This is the original and the best. IMHO.

    ROTFL but didn’t you forget to remind us that this is NOT investment advice?

    My tech underground nerdnet is beginning more whispers about beta 2 and slap patching and reduced feature sets and such. More concerns about Office bloat and both splitting into so many versions and liscense variations that FUD may win. M$FT has cash, marketshare and mindshare where it counts. I won’t bet against them but consider Apple offering OS X/iLife/iWork at anything close to M$FT volume OEM liscensing prices.

    I have to agree with Kadrofsky.

    I am stubbornly holding on to my MSFT shares (now down almost 18%)–praying for a special dividend or share buyback, as I’m sure many are at this point. Long term I think they will do OK. The question becomes, HOW LONG?

    Ballmer does not inspire confidence, to put it mildly.

    Isn’t this the kind of behavior that cost former Gov. Howard Dean any chance of becoming the Democratic nominee for President in 2004?

  8. The Other Cool Search Tool

    We’re actually a bit hesitant to let you in on the latest cool new search tool. It is so useful that we expect to be developing lots of items from it. Maybe we should just keep it to ourselves and…

    Not so hysterical as the Ballmer videos but still very funny: “Microsoft Re-designs the iPod package.”

    Now we know that Steve Ballmer can NEVER run for President!!
