Some fun feedback on Monday’s column about Ballmer’s options, in case he decides to keep shopping.
“I’ve always thought that MS should just buy Ford or GM or something … revolutionize the way they do business … and then spin them off in 5 years.
I think that they could put a little bit of effort into saving Detroit.
And I think that a blank slate — with Microsoft technology … would go a long way to bringing Microsoft tech to the real world.
Or how about Microsoft buys AMD / ATI? That would be a steal!!!”
I hadn’t thought of that one, but Ballmer already has some connections with Ford, and he probably knows Alan Mulally …
How about buying Adobe?
