We learn once again that when you’re writing the paychecks, you get to set the rules.

Steve Ballmer is the former CEO of Microsoft and new owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. He spent $2 billion to buy ’em, and he’s remaking the team culture to his liking.

Just as Ballmer’s family isn’t allowed to own any iPhones, he told Reuters that the Clippers are getting rid of their iPads in the offseason. He’s keeping track of which coaches use Windows, too.
