Microsoft head honcho Steve Ballmer’s recently come in for some flak, due to saying some slightly odd things about the current state of technology. In a video on CNBC, he uttered:

I don’t think anybody has done a product that is the product that I see customers wanting. You can go through the products from all those guys … and none of them has a product that you can really use. Not Apple. Not Google. Not Amazon. Nobody has a product that lets you work and play that can be your tablet and your PC. Not at any price point. (Transcription: AllThingsD.)

Despite Ballmer setting the BWUH? level to 11, I let this slide. On Twitter, I simply pointed out that no-one really admits when their rivals are doing well, as evidenced somewhat by Apple’s oddly defensive ‘attack’ on the Nexus tablet during its recent keynote. But a Wall Street Journo piece today makes me wonder if Ballmer has his own Microsoft intranet, on which he can only visit the websites and

In every category Apple competes, it’s the low-volume player, except in tablets.

In every category apart from tablets? So presumably smartphones are tablets? And music players are tablets? Still, Microsoft might have become the high-volume player in screaming bullshit, if Ballmer keeps this up.
