Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

One puppet’s interpretation of Ballmer’s message to Yahoo (language advisory)

During Microsoft’s shareholder meeting in Bellevue on Wednesday, there was an old guy in the front row sleeping as CEO Steve Ballmer repeated the same message he’s given on Yahoo several times in the past few months: “acquisition discussions are finished.” But a search partnership remains a possibility.

Ballmer puppet.JPGMaybe if his delivery, instead of being calm and measured, was more along the lines of this glove-puppet Ballmer’s “final statement on purchasing Yahoo,” posted by Loren Feldman at 1938enterprise.com, the old guy would have perked up.

Note: You might want to turn down the volume on your computer before viewing this, or avoid it entirely if you’re sensitive to f-bombs, mf-bombs and other blue language. Enjoy.

How much more do you think Yahoo’s stock would have fallen if glove-puppet Ballmer gave the statement?
