Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer asked to sign an Apple notebook

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was a good sport recently when he agreed to sign a student's Apple notebook computer at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville. Lots of tech websites got a chuckle out of the video. (See TechFlash report.) But the truth is, the relationship between Microsoft and Apple is much more complicated than it was in the early days of the PC. Microsoft does a good business selling Office productivity software for Macs. Microsoft also is reportedly in talks to get its Bing search engine installed as the default on Apple iPhones and Macs.
So while Microsoft and Apple may compete, they also are partners.
