I thought last week’s rumor that Microsoft was trying to buy Yahoo was pretty far-fetched, but today’s rumor has to be one of the best ever. According to Andy Abramson (VoIP Watch) there are rumors that Steve Ballmer is about to be replaced by Bill Clinton as Microsoft’s CEO. What Andy didn’t mention is that Bill Clinton is currently practicing his chair throwing techniques in order to be properly qualified for the position.
Maybe this is a pre-emptive rumor to divert attention from Macworld.
Regardless, this has been a really >crazy week for rumors.
