    Bill Gates flops again
    Gates Nose-Dives at CES

    Lots of submissions this morning about Bill Gates' performance at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show. His Media Center PC presentation crashed. (The presentation is online.) Then he gave an interview to CNET, where he described anyone who doesn't support ever-increasing intellectual property laws as "communists". Boingboing has some commentary on that interview as well.

    I saw an article in the USA Today about Gates and his digital lifestyle. I tried to look athe Media Center PC presentation, but with the justing and buffering it was not worth the trouble.

    What found very interesting in the articles are that people will be getting rid of thier iPods for the M$ Portable Media Center players.

    I watched it in the morning, because I knew everyone would be wanting to watch it all day, and the stream would have many buffers. I was grinning through the whole thing. And it was so funny listening Conan, while Gates was squirming in his chair pressing all the buttons on the remote to get the thing working. I can't wait to download the video, whenever somebody gets it uploaded.

    If you get a chance to watch the stream, you should seek to the 24th minute. It's around there.

    Edit: Found the video:
