So thatabout Steve Ballmer appearing at WWDC? It was wrong.
Wall Street analyst Trip Chowdhry lit up the Internet rumor machine Thursday morning with a report to his investors that Apple had set aside seven minutes for Microsoft to talk up its Visual Studio software to developers during Steve Jobs' WWDC keynote speech on June 7. Microsoft got wind of the rumor and put the official kibosh on it Thursday via Twitter.
"Steve Ballmer not speaking at Apple Dev Conf. Nor appearing on Dancing with the Stars. Nor riding in the Belmont. Just FYI," the tweet said.
Extra points to Microsoft for having a sense of humor about the whole thing.
