More Steverino: Ballmer Unplugged!

Can’t be in a multibillion negotiation with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer?

Here, Ballmer talks about a variety of things, such as how to foster innovation at a big company, Windows Vista, immigration, the brownness of the Zune, even as Walt forces him to say the word “Google.”

He also shows off Microsoft’s Surface table, which debuted at the conference. (Also check out the very funny Surface spoof below the Ballmer chat.)
