Bill Gates' 4 Million Daily Spams A Bit Of An Exaggeration
from the not-so-crazy dept
Remember the widely reported story about Steve Ballmer telling the world that Bill Gates gets 4 million spam message a day and has a whole department filtering mail for him? Well, it turns out that, Ballmer (as he is known to do) was exaggerating by quite a bit. In an interview with reporter Mike Wendland, Ballmer admits Gates only gets 4 million spam message per year, which is quite different. This was about the same time that he took on the tech support role of helping Wendland deal with his own spam problem, and offering to get him in touch with the spam gurus working on the Gates account.
