    also shows how much pull microsoft and bill gates have with hollywood and politics to get the people they did.

    Hell, if you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?
    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    9to5mac dot com have it on their front page at the moment. Their link still works.

    Still isn't funny though I kind of admire Mr Gates for poking fun at himself and letting it float round the net.
