What, you didn’t think new Clippers owner and onetime Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer would let his team use Apple products, did you? WPCentral points us to a new report from Reuters that explains how Ballmer plans to purge all remains of Apple and Google products from his organization and make sure everyone in the company is using Windows-based devices.
Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer acquired the Los Angeles Clippers NBA basketball team in August, but he’s still a big promoter of his old company. In a chat with Reuters, Ballmer confirms that he wants his players and coaches to use Windows products. Ballmer related a recent conversation he had with LA Clippers head coach Doc Rivers, stating, “It’s one of the first things he said to me: ‘We are probably going to get rid of these iPads, aren’t we?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, we probably are.’ But I promised we would do it during the off season.” We would bet that Surface tablets would be number one on Ballmer’s wish list for his new team, which he acquired for $2 billion.
