Default DUH! News of the day: Apple Products Not Used By Bill Gates' Family

Being the brains behind Microsoft has made Bill Gates the wealthiest guy in the world. So he can pretty much afford to buy his kids any gadgets they want. However, Apple devices are banned in the Gates’ house.

This is surprisingly not a rule set by Bill Gates. Melinda Gates has made it very clear in an interview with The New York Times that she does not allow Apple hardware in the house. If the kids want an iPod they’ll have to settle for a Zune instead.

hmmm; either we get some free phones (Phone 7 partners), music players (Zune) and laptops (Win7 partners) from dad's work, or we go out and buy from the competition.

Let me think about this for one microsecond.
dumbest interview ever.

next up, Enzo Ferrari's family doesn't drive sports cars from other brands.
