iPhone and iPods are Banned at the Bill Gates Household

bill_melinda_gatesIt appears all electronic gadgets beginning with “i” are banned from the Gates’ household.

According to an interview with Vogue, wife of the computing mogul, Melinda Gates, is quoted as saying:

There are very few things that are on the banned list in our household. But iPods and iPhones are two things we don’t get for our kids.

You can just imagine them sat round the table on MacWorld day when iPod’s and iPhones are given their updates, refusing to mention “those updates to those products from that company named after a fruit who likes to name their products with an i prefix”

Mrs Gates does occasionally find herself slapping herself on the wrist:

Every now and then I look at my friends and say ‘Ooh, I wouldn’t mind having that iPhone’

She’s only human after all…
