Quote of the day: 'What changed?'

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's reaction to Apple's switch to Intel chips can be summed up in two words: "What changed?"

Speaking Monday at Microsoft's TechEd customer conference, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer whether Apple's move to Intel for its PCs changes the competitive dynamic between Microsoft and Apple.

"Will there be more device drivers because of this? No, Apple has their device model--we have ours. Will there more hardware manufacturers that build Apple machines other than Apple? That's a whole business model change. No reason to believe so," he said. "Frankly, if people wanted to do that, they could have been buying parts from IBM. What changed?"
