Default Melinda Gates on the Zune: That's Loyalty

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/24/magazine/24fob-q4-t.html?_r=2&ref=magazine' target='_blank'>http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/24/m...=2&ref=magazine</a><br /><br /></div><p><strong><em>"Q: Do you own an iPod, which is made by Apple?</em></strong><strong><em>A: No, I have a Zune.</em></strong></p><p><strong><em>Q: What if one of your children says, "Mom, I have to have an iPod?"</em></strong><strong><em>A: I have gotten that argument - "You may have a Zune."</em></strong></p><p>Hah! I love it. That's some dedication to your husband's company. Of course, Zune or iPod, the Gates Foundation is doing some really amazing things to fight poverty and disease in our world. <a href="http://www.one.org/international/blog/highlights-from-tonights-living-proof-event/" target="_blank">Check this out</a>. There are far more important things in this world than what brand of device you use, and I'm so glad to see the Gates' using their money to improve the world, one bit at a time.</p>

I could care less if they use Apple products at home or not, but Bill & Melinda's generosity and philanthropy has always impressed me. I truly admire them for this. Interesting that the richest folks in the world are the most generous. Good on them.
