Weekend Humor: Steve Ballmer reviews the iPad

What happens when "fake" CEO Steve Ballmer takes the new Apple iPad for a spin? Evidently, he's none too happy with it. Are you kiddin' me?

Full hilarious video after the break and yeah, we don't owe you a new keyboard if you are imbibing while watching. You've been warned.

He has been covering Microsoft since 2007 when this site was called WMExperts (and later Windows Phone Central). His interests include Windows, laptops, next-gen computing, and for some reason, watches. Before all this tech stuff, he worked on a Ph.D. in linguistics, watched people sleep (for medical purposes!), and ran the projectors at movie theaters because it was fun.

  • Absolutely hilarious. Well done and thank you whoever did this video.
  • Can you put this on AndroidCentral? I am sure they would find it every bit as funny as WMExperts.
  • Hey, Steve wears running shoes, not sandals. The Scoble comment was dead on!
  • Good stuff by whoever did this. The Safari comment should soon be finding its way into the signature line of MS fanboys everywhere.
  • Nice, any buyers remorse Malatesta?
  • Surprisingly, *no*. I use it everyday and it's a great passive-internet device. Actually, it's really good for three things: web, video and gaming. I still agree with all the criticisms and I still think it's way overpriced. But it's a lot of fun and development on it is HUGE (5,000+ apps so far; granted a lot are crap but at least 100 are not, lol).
  • Holy crap. That looks just like him. I wasn't aware it WASN'T the real Steve until about 1 minute in. Genius.
  • Amazing how they were able to so perfectly capture Ballmer's essence in a puppet! Well done!
  • the cookie monster voice makes this vid. William, theamazingipad.com
  • Wow, that made my day! Thanks WME, for finally posting something worthwhile that I haven't seen on the other guys...
  • I happen to have an iPad, yet still found this hilarious, along with some very good points. Nicely done! Now, back to my iPad...
