Microsoft not interested in making eReader

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer revealed his company is not interested in entering the eBook reader market. Ballmer claims they already have a device for reading, the PC, and that it's already the most popular device in the world.
"We have a device for reading. It's the most popular device in the world. It's the PC. I would love to see companies like Amazon and others bring their books to the PC. Hopefully we can get that to happen with Barnes & Noble or Amazon or somebody. But no, we are not interested in e-readers ourselves," said Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer of Microsoft, reports Reuters news-agency.

They weren't interested in media players either. Give it time
