Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer fires back at Apple CEO Steve Jobs for some hot Steve-on-Steve action, Moscone prepares for Apple’s show; and Stephen Colbert has some strong words for intellectual property thieves. Join us in the remainders for June 4, 2010—if you dare!
WWDC 2010 Moscone Center pics hit the Web (The Mac Observer)
The first pictures of Moscone West, where Steve Jobs will take the stage on Monday are up, and oh my god, Apple’s redesigned the entire place to look like a giant glass cube!
After Steve Jobs suggested that the fate of PCs would be to end up like trucks in a future where the iPad represents the car, Steve Ballmer used his D8 interview to engage in a little wordplay: “Well, there may be a reason why they call them ‘Mac’ trucks!” Geez, Ballmer, who writes your material, George Costanza?
Macworld’s own David Chartier points out that Apple changed the term in MobileMe’s preference pane from “Individual” accounts to “Full Member.” Holy cow! Stop the presses!
Huh. I have been informed that we actually do not have presses here on Macworld.com. Oh well. Carry on, everybody.

Stephen Colbert references an article in The Wall Street Journal about suits with an iPad pocket and points out that he created just such an ensemble for his appearance at the Grammy awards in February. There’s no way I’m going to be funnier than Colbert, so just watch the clip.
