Glad I missed the meeting

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I was sort of bummed that, for the third time in a row, circumstances kept me from the company meeting. Now I'm kinda glad:

Ballmer grabbed the Apple device from the employee and made some funny remarks as everyone booed. Then he put it on the ground and pretended to stomp on it, before walking away.

The scene was visible on the big screen, so even people in the upper deck could see what was happening. Later, during his presentation on stage, Ballmer referred to the episode again, teasing the person and making it clear that he hadn't forgotten what happened.

Rule No. 1: Hide the iPhone from Ballmer at the Microsoft meeting

Not sure I would been able to let my boss' boss' boss' boss' boss mime stomping my iPhone—I've only barely let my kids start holding it. Would have been significantly career-limiting to tackle the CEO at the big company hootenanny.
