Ballmer's flying chair: the chilling truth
It's much, much worse than we thought
Following Steve Ballmer's recent denial that he had ever thrown a chair in his life, least of all during a head-to-head with Mark Lukovsky who told the fuming MS big cheese he was off to Google, we speculated that he might in fact have thrown a table or, better still, ordered a lackey to throw the chair for him.
The reality is worse than we thought: Ballmer actually paid a Flash-programming lackey to throw both table and chairs, then plastered the terrifying results across the web in the guise of an MS Office Live Meeting advertisement:
That's right, there are eight chairs in there and a flying table. Note that the room is empty as a result of its traumatised former occupants running screaming to Google as Steve went postal. Now that's what we call a Live Meeting. ®
