There is so much news about Ballmer's retirement it is numbing.
Here is a fun discussion. I live in Redmond, WA, so I am surrounded by Microsoft employees. I left Microsoft 7 years ago, so I can joke about things like Microsoft.
What will Ballmer do next with his Billions of dollars?

One of the funnier ones would be if Steve bought a city. What city? How about his hometown of Detroit. Price is at an all time low.
Ballmer was born in Detroit, the son of Beatrice Dworkin and Frederic Henry Ballmer, a manager at the Ford Motor Company.
And Steve could rename the town Ballmerville. All computers will run Microsoft software. Only Windows Phones will run. It will be a utopian society for an executive with 33 years of experience at Microsoft.
