The Telegraph has some extracts from a recent Steve Ballmer presentation, including…

Ballmer insists: “I’ve never thrown a chair in my life.”

Translation? “I may have helped it gain maximum velocity in order to defy gravity for a few seconds”.

On cussing like a sailor…

“Did I want to keep that fellow at the company? Yes. Did I say I wanted to compete with Google? I don’t know what words . . . Did he write down the exact words? I don’t know. By and large I made a commitment nine years ago that I was not going to curse. I know I’ve had one or two transgressions in nine years, but I made that commitment to myself. Is that one of them? I don’t recall.”

Translation? “I suffer from the same selective memory loss as President Clinton”.
