Ballmer critiques Apple: $500 more to get a logo

Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO, described Apple’s products as merely higher priced with the same (computer) hardware, and consumers are paying $500 for the partially eaten apple..

Why do I feel that it is yet another loser comment?

Isn’t a brand name important anymore? Isn’t it worth to pay more for something of higher quality that we can trust and rely on?

From what he said about iPhone 1.0 back then, we have learnt that we do not need to take his words seriously..
