Gates: Just Say No to Apple

This story has been making the rounds. I first saw it on Digg, which got it from Gizmodo. Then a while later, it showed up on Drudge, which probably got it from Digg, which got it from Gizmodo. Now everyone probably knows about it.

Apparently, Vogue interviewed Melinda Gates and she disclosed that Bill won't allow family members to use iPods or iPhones. That leaves the Gates young'uns walking around with Zunes. Totally uncool!

I'm not sure how Bill deals with best bud Bono, who did iPod commercials (Apple even created a special Bono edition). "Uh, excuse me, Mr. Bono, but could you leave the iPod at the door?"
