Hide your iPhone if you meet Steve Ballmer

A little incident happen yesterday during Microsoft’s annual Private Company Meeting at Seattle’s Safeco Field. A Microsoft employee tried to take a picture (with his iPhone) of Steve with while he came on stage when…..:


Ballmer just grabbed someone’s iPhone at the company meeting. Everyone boo’d and then Ballmer gently placed it on the cement and ran away

The scene was visible on the big screen, so even people in the upper deck could see what was happening. Later, during his presentation on stage, Ballmer referred to the episode again, teasing the person and making it clear that he hadn’t forgotten what happened.

Don’t want to see your employees using iPhones? Stop messing around and finsish Windows Mobile 7.

Update: Engadget managed to get the photo taken with iPhone:
