Steve Ballmer says the "tide has really turned" after recent Apple market share gains: "Apple gained about one point, but now I think the tide has really turned back the other direction. The economy is helpful. Paying an extra $500 for a computer in this environment -- same piece of hardware -- paying $500 more to get a logo on it? I think that's a more challenging proposition for the average person than it used to be." http://www.engadget.com/2009/03/20/ballmer-says-tide-has-turned-on-apple-paying-500-more-to-get/ Cause the OS and design have nothing to do with it at all. Pretty sure that Tesla Roadster we parked next to at Apple HQ the other day is a sign that Apple is hurting. Or those +5000 people that M$ laid off while Apple didn't? Tables sure have turned. Love the comment about the economy being helpful. Cause we should all look on the bright side. The shitty economy that's hurting everyone in the country is awesome cause it's hurting out competitors!
