This year's Microsoft shareholder meeting wasn't a lot of fun for Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and Chairman Bill Gates, thanks to shareholders grilling him about Apple and the iPhone with questions like the above. Ballmer smacked him right back:
A sundial—casting a virtual shadow on screen—app, a one-pad Pong game, a great mustaches of the world catalogue, a virtual handshaking for germaphobes, and my favorite: The You Are Here GPS app. All rejected—and fake—Microsoft Phone apps.
When Microsoft COO Kevin Turner revealed Microsoft Stores will open next to Apple Stores and rain falls upward, he also talked about the "greatest single phone call in the history" he's ever received: Apple crying about the Laptop Hunters ads.
