Bill Gates still refuses to use an iPhone

Bill Gates still refuses to use an iPhone”

KERMIT-LIKE EX-MICROSOFT BOSS and poo drinker Bill Gates has admitted that he has started using an Android smartphone.

Gates said he has switched to Android (he didn't reveal what from) and said "no, no iPhone" when probed by the Fox presenter whether he runs a second handset. On being asked by the interviewer about which kind of phone was used by him, Gates answered that he was using an Android phone, before further adding that he added "lots of Microsoft software" in it. Gates famously banned iPhones and iPods at home in the past, but he does admit that Steve Jobs was a "genius" in the Fox interview.

Microsoft's own Windows-powered phones have failed to make a significant impact on the smartphone market, which is dominated by devices running Google's Android operating system.

He did not reveal which particular smartphone he now uses.

He doesn't say what phone he switched from, though it's probably a Windows Phone or Windows Mobile device.

Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 10, can power smartphones in addition to laptops, tablets and desktop computers.

To be honest, knowing how open and truthful the wider technology is, we are going to assume that this is all mouth crap and that Bill Gates uses an iPhone and an Apple Watch, and even those earbud things.

What is more, Microsoft actually sells the Galaxy S8 in its stores.

The "Microsoft Edition" phone comes with the firm's apps such as Office, Outlook email and its voice assistant Cortana included.

"I happen to use all windows based PCs..." he said.
