Delusional

Old Billy Boy has gone off his meds:

In a Vista-pimping interview with Newsweek yesterday, Bill Gates appears to be taking off the gloves with an all-out attack on the Mac. When questioned about accusations of copying Mac OS X features, Bill began accusing Apple of the exact opposite, and he also postulated that “maybe we shouldn’t have showed so publicly the stuff we were doing.” While he is of course referring to the 2003 demonstration of Longhorn, this isn’t even the half of it. Bill also tried to turn their reputation for swiss-cheese security around on Apple, claiming:

“Nowadays, security guys break the Mac every single day. Every single day, they come out with a total exploit, your machine can be taken over totally. I dare anybody to do that once a month on the Windows machine.”

uh….riiiiight

It’s marketing 2.0! It doesn’t matter how outrageous the claim, Just trumpet the opposite loudly enough and get enough uninformed people to believe it and it’ll eventually be true! Or at least you’ll get a lot of clueless consumers to think it might be true. Geeze, louise, is this guy serious!?!?

Some insane craftsman scratch-built a scale Russion SU-27 fighter jet that you have to see to believe. It’s worth taking ten minutes to page through the 60+ pages to see the result. Incredible.

Grunt, Grunt
