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.

I remember reading a few years ago about Apple/non-Microsoft products being banned from the Gates household. The only thing new (and surprising) here is that it's Melinda's decision, not Bill's... but I bet Bill's got no qualms with it. In fact, he probably silently agrees.
