Steve Ballmer is ditching iPads at LA Clippers in favor of Windows

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer purchased the Los Angeles Clippers last month for $ 2 billion, and now he’s hinting at some changes for the basketball team. Ballmer’s not dropping coach Doc Rivers or any star players, but he is planning to get rid of iPads in favor of Windows. “Most of the Clippers are on Windows, some of the players and coaches are not,” explains Ballmer in an interview with Reuters. “And Doc kind of knows that’s a project.

Professor Steve Ballmer: coming this fall to Stanford, this spring to USC

Now that he has stepped away from Microsoft — first as CEO and then as board member — new Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer will be driving down the California highway, teaching business classes as he goes. First up is Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. According to Business Insider, he’ll be “working with faculty member Susan Athey for a strategic management course called ‘TRAMGT588: Leading organizations.'”

Steve Ballmer steps down from Microsoft board

In a letter addressed to the Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, former chief executive and current owner of the Los Angeles Clippers Steve Ballmer officially stepped down from the Microsoft board of directors, effective immediately.
