No Apple Products for the Gates Family! Say It Ain't So!
I read this article this morning saying that Melinda Gates did an interview with Vogue magazine. First off, I'd like to say, I'd never seen a picture of her before, and I was a little shocked. She seems kind of homely. I kind of figured that Bill Gates would go with a trophy wife, since he's well, you know, Bill Gates and all. Or at least I thought she'd be better "preserved". I dunno. Is that wrong? Anyway. Apparently according to her the kids can play Xbox, and use all other Windows products all they want, but she says, and I quote:
"There are very few things that are on the banned list in our household. But iPods and iPhones are two things we don't get for our kids."
What I want to know is, do the Gates kids complain to their dad all the time about all the shit wrong with their computers? When they're being rebellious, do they ever scream, "OH YEAH, WELL I'M GOING TO GO BUY A MAC!" before they slam the door? Do they ever go over their friends houses that own Mac Books? What they fuck do they listen to digital music on? The Zune? (BWAHAHAHA!) How about on the computers themselves? Old school Winamp? Inquiring minds want to know!
Melinda goes on to say that she gets a little jealous of her friends that own Apple products though. She said:
"Every now and then I look at my friends and say 'Ooh, I wouldn't mind having that iPhone'. "
I wish the article would have gone into more detail as to why that is. Is it just hate? Like how my uncle hates the Japanese and all their products so much he won't buy shit from Japan? ('Cause of the genocide and death of our culture they started after WW2 and all.) Is it just that kind of hate? I wonder.
