Microsoft

+ - Steve Ballmer Pelted with Eggs

Submitted by massivefoot
massivefoot (922746) writes "Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was heckled and had eggs thrown at him during a lecture to university students at the Corvinus University in Budapest.

The student stands up accuses Microsoft of stealing a large amount of money (the audio is unclear on the actual amount, it could be 25 million Forint) from Hungary, before being led away, wearing a shirt with "Microsoft = Corruption" written on the back.

None of the eggs actually hit Ballmer, as he took cover behind a desk. Asked by another student whether this was the first time that he'd had an egg thrown at him, Ballmer replied "Yes, it's the first time I've had an egg thrown at me, ah, since 1966.""
Music

+ - Warner rejects Jobs on DRM.

Submitted by

massivefoot writes "Warner Music has rejected the suggestion from Steve Jobs that DRM should be removed from music downloads. In an open letter this week, the Apple boss had said that removing such software would also allow greater usability for customers, as any online music store would be able to sell songs that would work on all players. "This is clearly the best alternative for consumers, and Apple would embrace it in a heartbeat." said Mr Jobs. Warner Music, the world's fourth largest record company, seems far from convinced."

Sentient plasmoids are a gas.
