MONKEY BOY!!!!@!!!!!!!!! Ballmer does the monkeyboy demo when someone asks for some love for Web Developers.

2:00 HD format wars over, Bluray won, what’s Microsoft’s plans SB: we don’t make drives, we believed that HD DVD was a good solution, but moving forward we’re going to support Bluray, in Vista, in ways “that make sense.” Long term: will it be physical or digital delivery

:57 Silverlight on Microsoft web sites, like AOL has done with mail SB: over time, doesn’t make sense to abandon sites overnight, but over time they will switch
1:56 GK what phone do you use: SB: switch regularly, looking for larger keys as he gets older.
