Gates Tricked By Canadian Radio Show
from the april-fools dept
It seems we just can’t let go of these various April Fools jokes. Somehow, some Canadian radio hosts convinced Bill Gates to talk with them as they pretended to be Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien. During the 14 minute conversation, the fake Chretien insulted Windows while trying to put plans to meet with Gates into his Outlook client, saying that it wasn’t working and asking, “Who’s the idiot who invented this shit?”. I’m surprised that Gates agreed to the interview without more checking up on things. A Microsoft spokesperson only said that the hoaxers “were persistent”.
