Well... Bing really get 30% of US market? That sounds pretty sweet. As for the Ballmer article. Who do I to judge? He managed to rack up whole lot of "profit" and "profit margin" while taking his sweet time making Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 and yet to be released Office 2013 (the earning report does not include all three sales ofc). But I would like to say, With WinPh, Skydrive, Win8, Hotmail, Xbox Music, Xbox. The circle is quite complete. Ballmer pushed the Skydrive and nicer looking MSN, Bing, outlook.com.
