Microsoft’s Ballmer vows to ‘kill’ Google

Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s ebullient chief executive, threatened to “kill” Google and “bury” its chief executive during a foul-mouthed tirade against the internet search engine giant, according to court documents.

The allegations are contained in papers filed in a US court last Friday and are the latest indication of the intense rivalry that has developed between Microsoft and Google, which was founded by Sergey Brin and Larry Page in 1998 and has grown explosively to have a market value of $80bn (£44bn).
