Steve Ballmer has the “Buy American” thoughts and mentality. He is the reason why executive employees of Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ MSFT) were only allowed to use the phones produced by their own company. They were allowed to just have a peek of the rival phones. However, this trend changed when Satya Nadella became the CEO of Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ MSFT).
