Lots of words...nothing said
Here's a clip of Steve Ballmer from the D8: All Things Digital conference talking about mobile devices, such as the iPad.
He goes on for a few minutes (and that's after the video was edited) saying things like "PCs will always be around" and "PCs will grow in popularity and use". After 3 minutes, I realized he wasn't actually saying anything. He was primarily filling time with lots of meaningless words...and contradicting himself in the process (at one point he says people don't want multiple devices, which is why they'll always want a PC. Later he states that people will buy a PC...and maybe they'll have a second device that's mobile).
You want to know why Apple just passed Microsoft in size based on Market Cap? Compare Ballmer's ramblings with that of Jobs from the same conference.
