Steve Ballmer's reaction towards iPhone

The damning thing isn't that Apple got there first; it's that even after Apple revealed it, that Ballmer didn't get it, that he didn't see instantly that Apple had unveiled something amazing and transformative. All Ballmer could see was the near future, the next few months where the iPhone was indeed too expensive and where typing on a touchscreen was a novelty............Of course Microsoft's CEO wasn't going to sing the iPhone's praises. But if he had a true understanding of what they suddenly found themselves up against, he sure as shit would not have laughed at it.
