In a question and answer with students, Bill Gates revealed his master plan to create a line of “iPod killers”.
According to the Microsoft founder, the company will focus on developing synergistic relationships with its many hardware partners that leverage value and increase “buy-in”.
Which, he claims, will somehow result in “hot products.”
Unfortunately for Gates, however, the students were unable to hear his comments as they were already listening to their iPods.
“WHAT?” yelled iPod shuffle owner Rick Levitas.Â “WHAT DID HE SAY?”
“SORRY, DUDE,” said iPod nano owner Darren Nantz.Â “I CAN’T HEAR HIM.Â MY IPOD IS ON TOO LOUD.”
Pointing to his iPod for emphasis, Nantz repeated two inches from Levitas’ face “TOO LOUD!”
He then held up his hands and shrugged as if to indicate there was nothing he could do about it.
Levitas stared at him briefly before yelling “WHAT?”
Gates quickly moved on to a question about what his favorite color is.
