Steve Ballmer Talks About Microsoft Competing With Apple And Amazon

In an interview with Bloomberg, former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer spoke about Amazon, Apple, Uber and more. When asked about Apple, Steve acknowledged that they have done a good job. He also said, “Microsoft will give them a good run for their money” and that “nobody else has really tried to compete with them anymore really seriously in hardware.” He mentioned that Surface Book is a new category created by Microsoft.

When asked about Amazon, he said that there’s a fierce competition going on between Microsoft Azure and AWS. But he said that “I think they are a place that people don’t want to work” and that “anybody who ever left Microsoft, we could count on them coming back within a year or two because it’s not a great place to work.”

When asked whether he loves or hates Uber, he said he loves Uber, but he really don’t understand the market capital of it.
