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.

Like he'd even need to make a rule or policy like that.

If daddy is loaded and paying, what kid's gonna pick a PC laptop over a MacBook Pro even when running Windows? ;)

I was sure I read having a Zune is the new awkwardness that kids get picked on in schools.
