Microsoft’s CEO, Ballmer: Google Is “Copying” Us
The Seattle Times Newspaper published an interview with Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer. The interview covered many topics but I wanted to highlight the search specific topics.
Ballmer in the interview said, “They’re [Google] starting to look at the stuff we’re doing and copying it back. What is it? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” He outright says Google is copying them. Of course, many would agree.
I also found Ballmer’s comments on what Bing does better than Google. Ballmer said, “our maps are better, our images our better, our picture is different.”
In response to Google’s CEO calling Bing, Google’s biggest competitor, Ballmer said, “We’re his best competitor, and we’re a very good competitor and we’re going to do a very good job..”
Outside of those comments, did you know Ballmer checks his Facebook account and page everyday?
