Swimming with the Razorfishes

Saturday, March 21, 2009


"Apple gained about one point, but now I think the tide has really turned back the other direction," Ballmer said, via webcast. "The economy is helpful. Paying an extra $500 for a computer in this environment -- same piece of hardware -- paying $500 more to get a logo on it? I think that's a more challenging proposition for the average person than it used to be."

It is amazing that the person leading this massive software company says something so stupid. Reducing the differences between Apple's products and those of other manufacturers as "a logo" demonstrates his depressing mindset of mediocrity: we won't make the best products, we will just sell the most products.
