Ballmer said, yes, it was awkward cutting a deal with Microsoft’s biggest rival. He went with Amazon Web Services because it provides the computing power behind CourtVision, a video technology the Clippers are using to develop a mobile app that may “transform the consumer experience.”

    Watch, he’s going to give unlimited Azure cloud compute to CourtVision and they’re slowly going to migrate off AWS.

    I wish this lame guy had spent money on free food when he was at MS, instead of throwing the money in water. Tens of billions of dollars.

      You mean instead of 1 billion for stupid Surface ad and a half billion for Window 8 marketing or wasted developer resource on Windows RT or Windows mobile or Zune or Surface RT or 7 Billion on written off no name ad company or 8 billions on Skype?

      Thanks for providing the concrete numbers here :-) If he didn’t make any ONE of these moves, MS would have free food forever (just put the money wasted in a fund and use the capital return for free food)

    Balmer is jealous that MS is doing so well. It really sucked under him.

    Wut? I'm pretty sure the Clippers were a marquee customer of Azure and Surface at one point.
