Ballmer on the iPhone announcements

Sure, we've had a lot to say about Apple's iPhone announcements yesterday but what does Steve Ballmer think? Ballmer is the CEO of Microsoft (a small software company based in Washington state), and during Mix '08 he was asked about the iPhone SDK, ActiveSync, and if Silverlight (Microsoft's Flash-like web technology) will make an appearance on the iPhone.

Ballmer said that Silverlight on the iPhone is interesting, but hasn't been discussed much with Apple. He, of course, welcomed Apple's use of ActiveSync (hey, Microsoft likes money), and he hinted that the 30% cut that Apple is taking in the App Store might be a little high.
