Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer says not to worry: despite the bad economy, the company is poised for big growth.

"I believe our digital lives will only continue to get richer," Ballmer told attendees at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Ballmer is particularly high on the new operating system, Windows 7, and pumped up additions to the Halo franchise. Halo Wars will be on-sale February 28 and Halo 3: ODST will be available in the fall. The acronym stands for Orbital Drop Shock Troopers.
