Redmond's head honcho spills the beans

Ahead of a visit to the UK, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer sat down with silicon.com's sister site CNET News.com to share his thoughts on Windows 7, competition with Google - and the rumoured Microsoft tablet, thought to be called Courier.

The Microsoft head honcho also gives his opinions on perennial rival Apple, saying of the Mac maker's latest ads: "They've done a very good job of marketing to their 3.5 per cent of the market. I think they do a great job for their 3.5 per cent, and I'm glad we're doing a great job with the other 96.5 per cent."
