Steve Ballmer s Unofficial Biography
Contest Directions: Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced past Friday that he would leave the company and retire in the next 12 months. Ballmer's history with Microsoft leaves a mixed legacy. He's been known to go crazy on stage, and in Windows ads, but most importantly, shareholders blame Ballmer for Microsoft's losing a lot of its business to Apple and Google. Ballmer had always been a shadow of Bill Gates rather than being an inventor like Steve Jobs. Microsoft stock rose 7 percent on the news of Ballmer's upcoming departure, as investors saw this as a chance for Microsoft to reinvent itself. Ironically, the stock jump instantly increased Ballmer's wealth by almost $1 bln.
Photoshop known and unknown episodes from Ballmer's biography (hobbies, jobs, etc), or show what he may (or may not) be doing after his retirement.
