Bill Has a Great Sense of Humor (or Just Good Writers)
At this week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Bill Gates gave what he said
was his final keynote, as he's retiring from full-time Microsoft work this summer.
In the speech, Gates gave his vision for the future
of personal computing, one where mice and keyboards are replaced by natural
language and touch (maybe he's been inspired by the iPhone).
But the best part was a video
showing Gates' last day, starring George Clooney and Bono.
The writers must read Barney's Rubble, as the video showed Gates vying for
a role on this year's presidential ticket. As my column did over a year ago,
observers noted the fact that Bill's retirement coincides with the next presidential
term. Of course, you heard it here
first, long before "Dilbert" writer Scott Adams took all the credit.
