Just in case you believed the rumor that Microsoft's own Steve Ballmer would be speaking at Apple's WWDC in the coming weeks (I mean seriously, you believed it?), Microsoft would like you to know that the rumor is false. If you didn't hear it, here's how it went: Trip Chowdhry, an analyst at Global Equities Research, stated that Ballmer would be appearing at WWDC to announce Visual Studio for the iPhone platform. And as you can imagine, the rumors went rampant from there. However, in a message posted on Twitter a few minutes ago, Microsoft laid the rumor to rest by saying: "Steve Ballmer not speaking at Apple Dev Conf. Nor appearing on Dancing with the Stars. Nor riding in the Belmont. Just FYI." Of all the rumors I would like to have seen, I am sorely disappointed that Dancing with the stars is not in Mr. Ballmer's future. The end.
