Ballmer to toss out the Clippers’ iPads, replace them with the Surface

iPad Vs. Surface Steve Ballmer

What, you didn’t think new Clippers owner and onetime Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer would let his team use Apple products, did you? WPCentral points us to a new report from Reuters that explains how Ballmer plans to purge all remains of Apple and Google products from his organization and make sure everyone in the company is using Windows-based devices.

“Most of the Clippers on are Windows, some of the players and coaches are not,” Ballmer told Reuters. “And Doc kind of knows that’s a project. It’s one of the first things he said to me: ‘We are probably going to get rid of these iPads, aren’t we?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, we probably are.’ But I promised we would do it during the off season.”

So far, Ballmer has taken to his new role as Clippers owner with the same level of enthusiasm that he had while he served as CEO of Microsoft. In a speech to fans this past summer, Ballmer pledged that the Clippers would be “hardcore,” which the oft-combustible ex-Microsoft boss defined as an attitude where “if something knocks us down we’re gonna get back up and we’re gonna keep coming and coming and coming and coming and coming!”

Hardcore, baby.
