Microsoft's Steve Ballmer Sees All Media Electronic in 10 years

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told the Washington Post today that trees will have no fears from newspaper publishers as all media will be eletronic.

Funny to see someone with such influence on our lives be so far off the track. Guess it is a long time since he used public transportation, Unless Microsoft is working on some method of running cars using paper and give the world electronic readers to stop them from wanting newspapers. Or the advertisers sponsor the giveaways in return for strategically inserted ads?

Either way I have the comment time logged.... wonder where Ballmer will be in ten years? Fighting off a Google takeover perhaps, if that prediction comes true.
