  1. Bill Gates Says His Preference for Android Over iPhone is Due to Pre-Installed Software Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates this week participated in his first meeting on Clubhouse, the increasingly popular invite-only conversation app, where he fielded a range of questions as part of an ongoing book tour. Gates was interviewed by journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin, and given that the Clubhouse app is currently only available on iOS, naturally one of the questions that came up was whether Gates regularly uses an iPhone and if he prefers iOS over Android.
  2. Bill Gates says there needs to be an Elon Musk in every sector Just days after Bill Gates launched his new book, How To Avoid A Climate Disaster, the Microsoft founder and former CEO has said that we need innovators like Elon Musk in every sector - naming steel and cement specifically - to help tackle global warming. Musk’s contributions to climate change include pushing the limits of electric vehicles with Tesla and developing reusable rockets. Gates made the comments in an interview with CNBC while being quizzed over whether or not he has been sh
  3. Bill Gates, the Microsoft founder who later pivoted to a career in being the richest man in the world, is losing his touch. If any of us were as bad at our jobs as Gates, we’d be on the bread lines faster than you can say, “guillotines are the future.” And this week, the man’s downward spiral continued. Bill Gates On Monday night, Gates slipped from the position of being the second-richest person on the planet. The Bloomberg Billionaires Index found that Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s personal worth had risen to $127.9 billion while Gates’s stagnating fortune of $127.7 bi
  4. At a recent event hosted for founders by the venture firm Village Global, one of its most prominent investors, Bill Gates, sat down with Eventbrite cofounder and CEO Julia Hartz to discuss founding a company and the tough decisions necessary at nearly every turn in order to create and sustain a thriving enterprise. As part of that conversation, Hartz asked Gates about his views on work-life balance, and whether they have evolved from an earlier point in Gates’s life, when he has said that he “didn’t really believe in vacations.” His reply,
  5. Revisiting the spectacular failure that was the Bill Gates deposition In the 1990s, Microsoft wore its disdain for antitrust on its sleeve. Now, not so much. Enlarge Aurich Lawson 144 with 91 posters participating When Microsoft backed a key motion filed two weeks ago in Epic Games’ antitrust lawsuit against Apple, it raised a few eyebrows. Two decades ago, the US Justice Department, 18 states, and the District of Columbia sued Micr
  6. Aunty Mabel on Facebook thinks he is a Bond baddie (spoiler: he's not) Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates stuck an oar into tinfoil-hat-infested waters once again today with a pretty reasonable plan to deal with the ongoing global pandemic. In an opinion piece for Tortoise Media, His Billness laid out a three-part plan for eliminating the grim threat of coronavirus and, unsurprisingly, it all hinges on those pesky vaccines. Gates reckoned that likely more than one vaccine will be available by the early part of next year, but dealing
  7. The billionaire philanthropist, however, says the antibody drugs used on President Trump could significantly curb the death rate for COVID-19 patients. Bill Gates has been among the vocal figures in discussing how to deal with the coronavirus. Bill Gates is still criticizing the state of COVID-19 testing in the US, calling it a "truly sad thing" at The Wall Street Journal CEO Summit this week. But he offered a glimmer of hope, noting that the antibody-based drugs used in President Donald Trump's coronavirus treatment could dramatically curb the death rate from COV
  8. Key Points Microsoft co-founder and former CEO Bill Gates told CNBC on Wednesday morning he had been naive about the government scrutiny that comes with getting large when he was running Microsoft. “The rules will change somewhat,” Gates said about the possibility of Big Tech antitrust regulation. “I’d say the chances of them doing something is pretty high.” Microsoft co-founder and former CEO Bill Gates told CNBC Wednesday morning he had b
  9. Bill Gates bought a Porsche, and then Elon Musk talked trash about him Apparently, the Porsche Taycan prompted Musk’s ire Photo by Ryan Manning / The Verge Bill Gates bought an electric car. But while he’s given Tesla credit for pushing other carmakers to go electric, it does seem notable that he didn’t buy from the company that pushed the innovation. He bought a Porsche Taycan. Someone alerted Elon Musk to this development, of course. And that got us a bitchy tweet from Musk: “My conversations with Gates have been underwhelming tbh.” I
  10. Bill Gates: Windows Phone could have defeated Android Microsoft founder laments missed opportunity due to antitrust investigation (Image credit: Microsoft) Microsoft founder Bill Gates believes the company would have dominated the smartphone world had it not been for an antitrust investigation it faced in the early 2000s. Speaking at the New York Times’ DealBook conference, Gates said he was too distracted by the case and missed a deadline to put Windows Mobile on a Motorola device by a matter of months.
  11. Bill Gates says countries will probably use interviews and databases to track the coronavirus Photo by Nicolas Liponne/NurPhoto via Getty Images Bill Gates thinks most countries will fight COVID-19 with interview-based contact tracing and a central database to track exposure. Gates posted a paper today outlining potential pandemic treatments, vaccines, and containment strategies. He calls contact tracing, which helps identify and isolate people who could spread the virus, an “ideal way” to stop the pandemic. But he downplayed the importance of decentralized tech-only o
  12. Bill Gates calls Microsoft’s TikTok deal a poisoned chalice Microsoft’s complicated deal even has Gates wary Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has described the company’s potential TikTok deal as a poisoned chalice. In a wide-ranging interview with Wired, Gates makes it clear that Microsoft acquiring parts of TikTok won’t be easy or simple. “Who knows what’s going to happen with that deal,” says Gates. “But yes, it’s a poison[ed] chalice.” He also notes that being a big playe
  13. It's time for the government to step in and regulate big tech companies, says Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. With tech giants like Google, Facebook, Amazon and others exerting so much influence over culture and the economy, not to mention users' daily lives, it's become necessary for lawmakers to become more involved in how those companies deal with essential issues like privacy and cyberbullying, Gates said in an interview posted online by Bloomberg on Wednesday. "Technology has become so central that government has to think: What does
  14. It may make you feel like you’re doing something, but those climate activists screaming at investors to divest from those dirty fossil fuels could be wasting their time, Microsoft mogul Bill Gates has said. Gates, one of the world’s leading philanthropists, is telling the climate brigade that they would be better off abandoning their divestment crusades and instead encouraging investments in alternatives such as disruptive technologies that will slow carbon emissions. How many tons of carbon emissions has the divestment crusade reduced thus far? Likely zero
  15. He argues that it just creates more companies that behave badly. Bill Gates is unsurprisingly very familiar with antitrust regulations of large tech companies, so how does he feel about the US government's ongoing competition review? He's not a fan -- though not necessarily for the reasons you might think. The former Microsoft CEO told Bloomberg in an interview that it was better to correct the specific practices than to break the companies up. If you split them, you now have two companies "doing the bad thing," he said. He wasn't completely averse to
  16. It was a whirlwind day for Jeff Bezos. The world’s top billionaire briefly lost his spot as the richest man on Earth to Bill Gates on Friday morning, before recovering to reclaim the title by day’s end. The Amazon founder, who also owns the Washington Post, as well as aerospace firm Blue Origin among other holdings, fell to the No. 2 spot after the e-commerce giant’s stock price tumbled 7% in after-hours trading Thursday following a disappointing earnings report. It was the company’s first quarterly drop in profit since 2017, and it cost Bezos n
  17. Bill Gates says tech companies ‘deserve rude, unfair, tough questions’ He also told the Armchair Expert podcast that he considered Steve Jobs a “genius” Photo by Saeed Adyani / Netflix Bill Gates believes tech firms “deserve” the kind of scrutiny they got during Congressional hearings last month, and that the late Steve Jobs was a “genius,” he told the Armchair Expert podcast. “If you’re as successful as I am or any of those people are, you deserve rude, unfair, tough questions,” the
