Microsoft's CEO will have to shop for his Xbox 360-- Posted by XanTium on December 7 23:27 EST
Coming from Reuters ... so I guess it's not a joke:


Microsoft Corp.'s Chief Executive Steve Ballmer will have to shop around for an Xbox 360 game console this holiday season just like the rest of us -- it doesn't come with his job.
"The Ballmer children do not have their Xbox 360 yet. I'm in the same boat as many of you," Ballmer said. "Thanks to the wonders of Sarbanes-Oxley, management does not get a free Xbox 360," he quipped at a meeting of technology industry executives.

Whatever. So, celebrities received free Xbox 360's, but Steve Ballmer has to wait? Hmm...

He's not in the same boat as most of us. Steve Balmer has a net worth of 14,000,000,000 dollars, making him the 11th richest person on earth. He could buy a hundred 360s off ebay in blink.
