Anyway, Ballmer, who has been (in)famous for his outbursts, spotted a member of his team, who is “allegedly a member of the Windows group”, using a (gasp) iPhone to take a photo of him.
Ballmer quickly snatched the iPhone from his employee and “made some funny remarks as everyone booed.” He then pretended to throw the device onto the ground and pretend to stomp on it, before storming away. It’s unknown at this stage what damage was done to the iPhone, if any.
Twitter was instantly aflutter courtesy of Microsoft employees, with one employee at the conference writing "you just don't pick up the CEO of Chevy in a BMW." Ballmer is still currently a hot topic on the social networking service, with some calling him an “idiot” and others describing him as “envious of the iPhone’s success”.
According to Techflash, “the scene was visible on the big screen, so even people in the upper deck could see what was happening. Later, during his presentation on stage, Ballmer referred to the episode again, teasing the person and making it clear that he hadn't forgotten what happened.”
There is currently no video available of the incident, however this story will be updated if and when such a video surfaces.
