Microsoft Declares War on Google

The AP reports on a tirade by Microsoft CEO Steve Balmer.

The tense words are recounted in a sworn declaration by a former Microsoft engineer, Mark Lucovsky, who said he met with Balmer to discuss his decision to leave the company and join Google.

Michael Liedtke writes:

After learning Lucovsky was leaving to take a job at Google, Ballmer picked up his chair and hurled it across his office, according to the declaration.

Ballmer then pejoratively berated Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Lucovsky recalled.

"I'm going to f------ bury that guy, I have done it before, and I will do it again," the declaration quotes Ballmer. "I'm going to f------ kill Google.
