Melinda Gates Says "No Apple" In Her House
Now, Bill's wife has cleared things up. In a recent interview with The New York Times, Melinda admitted that she owns a Microsoft Zune, not an iPod. And if their child would ask for an iPod… they would be forced to use a Zune. In fact, this has happened before. Melinda confessed that at least one child has asked for an iPod before, but they were shot down. Tough parenting!
She then said "of course not" when asked if she owned an iPad, and when asked if Bill uses an Apple laptop, she said: "False. Nothing crosses the threshold of our doorstep." Those are pretty bold words, and while she did say that Microsoft makes some products for the Mac, we're guessing she doesn't use any of them. So much for being a kindhearted soul when it comes to the arch rival!
