Steve Ballmer isn’t new in tech area, and he’s known of releasing somewhat contreversy comments through out his career. Recently he spoke to Bloomberg and gave a pretty interesting interview. He spoke about Microsoft Office 2013 and how the product is doing, he also, talked about Dropbox, and he said that even Dropbox now has 100 millioon users, it’s still a small startup. It’s pretty weird that anybody calls Dropbox as ‘small startup’, but hey the man can’t compliment SkyDrive rival right, can he?
