Apple Being the brains behind Microsoft has made Bill Gates the wealthiest guy in the world. So he can pretty much afford to buy his kids any gadgets they want. However, Apple devices are banned in the Gates’ house. This is surprisingly not a rule set by Bill Gates. Melinda Gates has made it very clear in an interview with The New York Times that she does not allow Apple hardware in the house. If the kids want an iPod they’ll have to settle for a Zune instead.

WHY?

The most important question was never asked during the interview: "WHY".

Ok so she denies the kids some stuff. So what? Parents do that. As long as we don't know the reason it's not news, it's not a statement, it's nothing. "Parent denies kids something." Wow, groundbreaking.

The only way this story would hold any meaning is if she would deny something that's considered crucial for the kid. "Parent denies kids food", that's a story.

Are Apple products now as important as food, is that how it is?
