Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on October 24th, 2010

In an interview with the New York Times, Melinda Gates, wife of William Gates, says that Apple products are not allowed in their household. She is supporting her husband, who you may remember had banned all Apple products from his company’s campus back in 2005.

You can check out her Apple related answers from the interview below.

Bill Gates’ Doom video from 1995

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on April 2nd, 2009

The above video for your enjoyment features Bill Gates, dressed in a black trench coat and carrying a shotgun, inside of the Doom game. Apparently it was a promotional type clip used to introduce Windows 95 and DirectX at the Microsoft Judgement Day event in 1995.

Basically Bill is in the game and wants to share his feelings about how Windows 95 and DirectX is ideal for playing PC games. DOS is too hard to use to play the games. At one point a Doom character shows up and gets blown off the screen(Not very convincingly) with Bill saying “Don’t interrupt me”.

Bill Gates & Seinfeld ad: Part two much better

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on September 13th, 2008

I know that some of you were traumatized by the first installment of this geek comedy duo. The second chapter of the Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld saga is much better. The best part? Bill Gates doing the robot. Once again, like Seinfeld’s show, it’s pretty much about nothing. There’s no MS stuff being sold here. Just good clean fun between two middle aged nerds trying to discover themselves by traveling this great land.

First Bill Gates/Jerry Seinfeld Microsoft ad

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on September 4th, 2008

Remember how the Seinfeld show was a “Show about nothing”? Then at one point they even made fun of that fact on the show, by making a fake show within the show about…nothing. This first Bill Gates/Jerry Seinfeld ad is a lot like that. It makes no damn sense. It’s about nothing.

We can only hope that future ads make more sense. The only thing I really got out of this is that Microsoft may be up to something. And it may or may not be delicious. And that’s only because Bill Gates shook his ass. Kramer and George Costanza sure could have spiced things up on this one. Steve Ballmer could have been George. Not sure what they were going for here.

Microsoft turns to Seinfeld to combat Get a Mac ads

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on August 21st, 2008

Microsoft turns to Seinfeld to combat Get a Mac adsWhether you’re a Mac fan or not, I think we all get a chuckle out of the “Get a Mac” ads. And they must have converted many PC users. Now Microsoft is looking to give as good as they get, recruiting Jerry Seinfeld and of course Bill Gates to show you how magical Vista is. It’s a $300 million campaign that has $10 million set aside for “key celebrity pitchmen”.

The ads apparently focus on “Windows, Not Walls,” talking about the need to “break down barriers that prevent people and ideas from connecting.” It will no doubt involve the Mojave Experiment too, which is Microsofts version of candid camera, where Microsoft made unsuspecting users(Prejudiced against Vista) test a new product that was in fact Vista. They’ve got Seinfeld, why not get Kramer and George in on it too?
