Microsoft’s Yahoo Chase Leaves Ballmer Boring at CES

Microsoft CEO Steve BallmerThis is what happens when you focus on corporate intrigue instead of technological improvement. You get boring. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer spent most of 2008 trying to eat Yahoo in a bid to fight Google. Now he has absolutely nothing interesting to announce at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show. Even his buddy Bill Gates won’t attend his keynote.

Let the snoozing audience serve as a reminder: Microsoft needs less negotiation, and more innovation. That may be difficult for a non-techie like Ballmer to understand — but he must understand if he’s to satisfy his burning hatred for Google CEO Eric Schmidt. Someone needs to remind Steve-O that he’s in the software business, not the drama business.

    Gee. That’s a bummer. Not that I’m doubting him or anything, but he really needs to get Microsoft’s arse up to make them innovative not just some giant company solidifying its reputation. Right now, I’m starting to dislike his enthuasiastic “pro-developers” speeches.
