Retro Tech Tuesday: Steve Ballmer Always Delivers!

Oh Steve Ballmer... has anyone brought so many laughs, intentional or otherwise, to the world of technology? We don't know the backstory on what you're about to see, but we will cut Ballmer a little bit of a break, and assume it was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. With this guy though, you never know.

I'm pretty sure the building would be burned to the ground before out tech-forward firefighters made it there. Especially if there was a cover page.
