I wonder if Steve Jobs would do the same thing with a Dell laptop? I bet he wouldn't as nice.

I think Ballmer got a little smart with the message and writing over the Apple logo, but at least he was kind enough to give him an autograph. He also seemed to have a good sense of humor about it.

Gotta give him props for that. I thought he was pretty cool about it.

I thought Ballmer was really cool. I've personally always liked Ballmer. The viral videos and images that you see on the internet are only depicting the worst moments and they really aren't that bad. The dude is passionate.

I hope this student puts the laptop on eBay (by Monday), I think I would. Every tech site in the world is talking about this right now. If he puts it on eBay every tech site will cover the eBay posting as well. I bet it would go for crazy money.

It was a public event - so of course he had to play nice.

Still funny though.

I was thinking the same thing. Strike while the fires hot.

I read some comment on YouTube about Woz signing a Hackintosh a couple months ago. That's kinda cool as well.
