Steve Ballmer Slams, Insults A Microsoft Employee Carrying iPhone

Do you know a CEO who jumps around on stage like a monkey, spits totally senseless (oops vision-less) remarks and then licks them. Ok, leave that do you know of any man who loses his cool on site of that great gadget called iPhone. I will give you a complete package -Steve Ballmer! This is not surprising considering his earlier records and the way he behaves in public. Apparently, Ballmer was making an entrance to a private Microsoft company meeting (in his own unusual way – slapping hands and running around) when he discovered an employee snapping his pic with an iPhone. According to TechFlash Steve Balmer Slamming The Employee
“Ballmer grabbed the Apple device from the employee and made some funny remarks as everyone booed. Then he put it on the ground and pretended to stomp on it, before walking away.”
He was not done, later in his presentation he again referred to the episode. Poor employee.

Various tweets from MS employees present in the meeting confirm this. Engadget even have the pic (form the same iPhone) when Ballmer was teasing the employee.
That said and done what I don’t understand is how people can call this “in good humour”. This is downright CHEAP.
