    Default Melinda Gates Tempted by iPhone Despite Bill's Objections

    Melinda may yearn for the iPhone, but some things just don't fly in Bill Gates' house


    Arguably the most instantly recognized figures in the computer industry is the brilliant and at times divisive Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Mr. Gates built an empire, the likes of which the young tech industry had never seen, releasing dominant software products. And while Mr. Gates has ceded control of the empire to close friend Steve Ballmer, he still remains deeply involved with the company.

    Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda Gates are currently enjoying the fact that Bill has a bit more free time these days -- if only a little bit more. They have three children -- Jennifer (13), Rory (10), and Phoebe (7).

    In a recent interview with the magazine Vogue, Melinda Gates discussed their house and family and offered up one humorous tidbit. She stated, "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."

    However, she admits, "Every now and then I look at my friends and say 'Ooh, I wouldn't mind having that iPhone.'"

    For now, though, she will have to resist her yearning and sustain on Microsoft's hottest released and unreleased offerings. According to the report the Gates house, unsurprisingly, features multiple copies of Windows 7, an Xbox 360, and a Microsoft Surface machine. However, that doesn't stop a girl from fantasizing.

    Here are some user comments ^^

    You guy's need to work on you passive aggresive skills. His response should be more like this: Honey, I heard you want an iphone, and I fully support your choice of a product that puts form before function. By the way, I'd like you to meet our new maid Geisle, she's from Sweden.
    By Motoman :
    ...and she has a robust feature set with multiple interfaces, is highly programmable and open to customization.

    Giddy can be traced back to the same Germanic root *gud– that has given us the word God
