BALLMER: RACE IS ON

MICROSOFT’S chief executive Steve Ballmer said yesterday the “race is on” between the next generation of Windows and Mac products. “It’s not about Mac and PC any more, it will be about the thing that replaces the Mac,” he told a conference in Los Angeles. He said spending on technology is expected to increase in developed countries this year, and that Windows will be used in a new breed of touch-screen tablet computers.
