The look on Gates' face....
« on: December 20, 2006, 01:52:57 AM »
I enjoyed this find on another forum and couldn't resist sharing it:

QUOTE
Microsoft convened a small group of bloggers today at their Redmond headquarters to discuss the upcoming Mix Conference in Las Vegas. Highlights of the day included:

    * The receipt of a Zune as a gift (the third I’ve received from Microsoft - I now have all three colors)
    * Seeing the look on Gates’ face when he walked into the room and every single one of us had a Mac open on the desk in front of us - Niall Kennedy had also set up a makeshift wifi network using an Airport
    * An hour-long anything goes Q&A session with Gates

Q) Do you despair at the number of Macs in the room?
A) We're happy about it. We sell a lot of software for the Mac!

.... and Hillary really is thrilled that Senator Obama might run.
Ya gotta applaud those bunnies for sacrificing their hearing just so some guy in Cupertino can have better TV reception.

Microsoft does make more money off of software they sell for Apple than they do on Windows
