Bill and Melinda Gates Still Avoid Apple Products Like the Plague

bill and melinda gates
Here's a shocker: Bill Gates doesn't like Apple products. In a recent interview with the New York Times Magazine, Melinda Gates roundly refuted rumors that she and her billionaire husband own Mac laptops, and insisted that her children are still forbidden from owning iPods. The matriarch of the Gates household may still dream of owning an iPod, but whenever one of her kids asks for one, her standard reply is, "You may have a Zune."

Surely, though, the Gates estate houses some of Steve Jobs's gadgets, right? An errant iPhone? A box of iPads headed to Africa? Apparently not. "Nothing crosses the threshold of our doorstep," Melinda Gates assured. Well, they probably have more important things to do with their money, anyway.
