Poor, bald CEO.
Steve Ballmer is really no worse than any other CEO. His prominent jowls, flamboyant affectations and grouchy, bald head make him look like the stock Corporate Bad Guy in a Disney movie.

It's kind of surprising he "only" made $1.34 million this year. (AppleInsider)

Ballmer's salary for 2010 was actually lower than his salary in 2008, despite the success of Windows 7 and Microsoft's good year. Why? For one thing the Kin's hilarious demise. For another, Microsoft's inability to make a convincing push into the mobile marketplace. Maybe Windows Phone 7 will earn him a bonus next year- but then again, maybe not.
