Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, right, stands with Ford President and CEO Alan Mulally next to Ballmer’s new hybrid Ford Fusion, which the former Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO personally delivered to Ballmer on Tuesday at the Microsoft campus. The two talked at a January trade show about what sort of cars the Ballmer family should buy — especially since Ballmer’s father was a longtime Ford employee in Detroit. Since then the Ballmers have gotten a Flex sport-utility vehicle and the blue Fusion, which happens to be the millionth vehicle equipped with Microsoft’s Sync automotive software system. Ballmer said he’s looking forward to a Lincoln MKS next.
