Bill Gates' wife completely bans Apple products from home

Now THAT’S brand loyalty. Melinda Gates says there’s no room for anything Apple in the house – even an iPod.

In a New York Times interview, Melinda Gates reveals that she is standing up for her husband’s honour and fortune – even at home:

Do you own an iPod, which is made by Apple?
No, I have a Zune.

What if one of your children says, “Mom, I have to have an iPod?”
I have gotten that argument — “You may have a Zune.”

Do you have an iPad?
Of course not.

Is it true that Bill works on an Apple laptop?
False. Nothing crosses the threshold of our doorstep.

Isn’t there room in this world for both Apple and Microsoft?
Microsoft certainly makes products for the Macintosh. Go talk to Bill.

The poor Gates children! Will they sue their parents for abuse?
