In an interview with USA Today, Steve Balmer, CEO of that Microsoft who failed to successfully launch their Zune music player recently has taken a swing at the plans of Apple over their iPhone launch. Balmer says:

“There’s no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance. It’s a $500 subsidized item. They may make a lot of money. But if you actually take a look at the 1.3 billion phones that get sold, I’d prefer to have our software in 60% or 70% or 80% of them, than I would to have 2% or 3%, which is what Apple might get.”
