Niet echt relevant nieuws, maar wel grappig: het gaat niet echt lekker met Bill's nieuwe boek, zo erg dat de prijs al tweemaal omlaag gehaald is:
Bill Gates new book Business@the speed of thought has set some new records by being twice discounted before publication. Online bookseller Barnes and Noble has increased its discount of the $30 tome from 30 per cent to 40 per cent, and is throwing in automatic entry in the Bill Gates' Sweepstakes - a trip to Microsoft's HQ for a tour and one evening in Redmond. No second prize in mentioned, but presumably it is two evenings in Redmond.
En het commentaar van The Register:
"This is the sort of thing that happens when you don't have a monopoly..."
