    Pardon me while my internet is down for a week so far due to upgrading to att uverse that doesn't work. But they really are cheapskates. Ballmer only got $600K? I would have been making at least half that much if I worked for the city of la and got into management. Where are those billions upon billions? The world only caters to investors, and only 90 of them have any money. I could go stand on the corner and pretend I'm collecting for a charity and get that much.

    Balmer's "base" pay is $697k. The Bonus is what makes them filthy rich which is millions and millions of dollars.
