Yeah right but you need to succeed before start teaching. Just take a look at your Zune "shake-head"

What does Steve Ballmer know about smart phones or successful handhelds? I'm not trying to attack the Zune, but it is not a success in any way. He has no grounds to attack the iPhone without a better or product of equal value on the market.

im lost aswell, M$ talking about being open????? what the hell is that??? They keep trying to stop Linux from taking over because of its open ways, so why are they now saying you need to be open???

to be honest, im actually suprised Ballmer even knows what open means...

Hey ballmer why not worry bout making a solid operating system that isnt Crap than worry bout apple.

Stop attacking the competition and LEARN from them for once. The Zune could've been a lot more popular if it had a better name, marketing, and collaborations with leisure spots like Starbucks and Borders.

And don't even get me started on Windows and Xbox. MSNBC was right. The management over at Microsoft thinks way too highly of themselves.

I don't think M$ knows how to learn. They know how to copy.
