Where to Watch Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's CES Keynote

Last year's CES keynote from Microsoft's Steve Ballmer was marked by power outages and a tease of the HP Slate. This year, our money is on yet another Windows tablet and maybe even a sneak peek of Windows 8, the next generation of the company's OS. In a blatant play for Facebook hits, Microsoft requires you to tap 'Like' on its Facebook page to view the livestream. If you'd rather not, head over...

Steve Ballmer Bemoans iPad Success, Kanye Interrupts Our Twitter

Highlights from this morning's other big tech headlines.... Perhaps still despondent over the Courier execution, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has reportedly acknowledged that Apple has "sold certainly more [iPads] than I'd like them to have sold."

YouTube May Launch Live Streaming, Jobs and Ballmer Talk Trucks

Highlights from this morning's other big tech headlines.... YouTube's recent broadcast of a Cricket match follows a live streaming progression for the site, and a new employee toolbar icon may indicate that more content is on the way. Eagle-eyed NewTeeVee analysts noticed the updated employee page, which features a specific 'Live Stream' icon. Hopefully, this will stick to sports, politics...

Microsoft Shakeup Finds Xbox and Devices Chiefs Retiring

A changing of the guard will soon take place in Microsoft's gaming and mobile divisions. Kotaku confirmed yesterday that J. Allard (above, right), who has served both as Chief Experience Officer and as Chief Technology Officer of Entertainment and Devices Division, and Robbie Bach (above, left), who has been President of Entertainment and Devices Division, will both retire from the company this...

Obama Administration Wants Microsoft to Make a Budget Balancing Game

People from a particular "party" (that might look something like this) are constantly making demands that the federal government cut taxes and reign in the deficit. Hell, most all of us can agree that we need to get our ballooning public debt under control before China turns us all into indentured servants. But nobody is willing to give up their precious government and social programs like...

Microsoft CEO Ballmer Says Google Has 'Unfair Advantage'

Few people know the finer points of antitrust law better than those over at Microsoft. So when one of the monolith's bigwigs accuses another company of unfair business practices, you'd take it pretty seriously, right? Then again, can you ever really trust an antitruster? Speaking at a search engine conference on Tuesday, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer decried what he sees as clearly unfair...

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer Autographs MacBook Pro

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer found himself in a rather awkward situation at a recent event in Nashville, and, much to his credit, chuckled and obliged one attendee's gutsy request. A student from Trevecca Nazarene University asked Mr. Ballmer if he would be kind enough to sign an autograph for him. But, the student didn't ask the Microsoft CEO to sign just anything; he wanted his laptop...

HP Slate Teased by Steve Ballmer

After days of hype, the big news from Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, during his keynote address this evening, was (aside from the power outage) the HP Slate, which appears to be a Windows 7-based touchscreen tablet. He debuted the prototype HP device, which still doesn't have an official name, in a rather uneventful presentation; we got to see some games, a PC Kindle app (showing off vampire novel...

Microsoft to Announce Tablet, iPhone Finally Coming to Verizon This Summer?

Highlights from this morning's other big tech headlines.... E-readers have been a hot topic of tech discussion recently, with the media primarily focusing on rumors of the Apple iSlate's supposed, upcoming unveiling. Microsoft, though, will apparently be stealing some of Apple's thunder, as CEO Steve Ballmer will reportedly introduce the company's own mysterious e-reader tonight at CES....

Microsoft's Steve Ballmer Depicted in a Mosaic of Crashed Computers

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has endured public criticism, and even public attacks (albeit with groceries), but an aspiring portrait artist has decided to honor the beleaguered executive with a mosaic. The only drawback is that the portrait is composed entirely of images that feature the dreaded Blue-Screen-of-Death (BSOD). For non-Windows users, the BSOD refers to the screen which appears on a...

Technology Key to Ending Recession, Says Bill Gates

According to Bill Gates, the key to digging the U.S. out of the recession is technology. Reuters reports that the former head of Microsoft told a group of high-level executives gathered at Microsoft's annual CEO summit, "the opportunities for innovation are stronger today than ever." Gates believes that the software and IT revolution are still in their formative stages -- and that it's up to IT...

Windows 7 Coming Next Year, Says Ballmer

Sure, we're still anticipating -- but not necessarily merrily -- the release of Windows Mobile 6.5, but for those who wish to look even farther into the future, Microsoft head honcho Steve Ballmer said in a conference call this week that WinMo 7 will be out sometime next year. That jibes pretty well with what we've heard from Motorola and ZDNet before, although there's probably a dozen or so...

Ballmer Sees the End of Print Media in Ten Years

Apparently unfazed by his recent egg attack, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has now gone out on a limb and made some pretty bold predictions in a recent discussion with Washington Post editors, the biggest of which, by far, is his proclamation that he thinks there'll be "no media consumption left in 10 years that is not delivered over an IP network." So as not to leave any doubt about that, he also...

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer Dodges Eggs at Hungarian University

We've already seen how quick on his feet Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer can be, and it looks like the big man finally had to put those fleet-footed skills to good use, as he was recently forced to duck for cover under a barrage of (three) eggs during a speech he was giving at a Hungarian University. Apparently, the disgruntled egg-tosser was angry with Ballmer for "stealing billions in Hungarian...
