On the eve of Jobsos exit, let's have another look at the famous video where Steve Ballmer responds to the iPhone
The interesting thing here actually isn't how ridiculously wrong Ballmer was about the success of the iPhone, but rather what he says about his own product - a recent winphone from Motorola
It's a very capable machine. It'll do music, it'll do internet, it'll do email, it'll do instant messaging[...]
It'll do. Everything about that statement is wrong, from the words 'capable' and 'machine' to the itemized lists of features on the phone that'll do. Nobody wants something that'll do. Well, maybe toilet paper.
