Steve Ballmer keeps his kids in check

Fortune Magazine was recently able to have a chat with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer -- this was apparently before the company had announced delays for its Windows Vista operating system and Office 2007 productivity suite and before word began to spread about a mutiny taking place.

The interview touches on Xbox 360 shortages, the company's stock price, and more interestingly, Ballmer's control over his kids:

Do you have an iPod?
No, I do not. Nor do my children. My children--in many dimensions they're as poorly behaved as many other children, but at least on this dimension I've got my kids brainwashed: You don't use Google, and you don't use an iPod.

Wow. Looks like Steve runs a pretty tight ship over there. If you're looking for something to send Steve's kids for their birthday, iPods and Google t-shirts would go over real well.
