Melinda Gates: My Kids Aren't Allowed to Have iPods

Bill and Melissa Gates kids have it made. Their parents are rich, beloved the world over for their philanthropic largesse and, even if most of the family money will be spent curing malaria and other third-world diseases, there will still be enough cash left over to buy a small Mediterranean island or two. But the charmed life does have its disadvantages too.

From an interview with Melinda Gates in the New York Times:

Do you own an iPod, which is made by Apple?

No, I have a Zune.

What if one of your children says, "Mom, I have to have an iPod?"

I have gotten that argument -- "You may have a Zune."

Do you have an iPad?

Of course not.

Is it true that Bill works on an Apple laptop?

False. Nothing crosses the threshold of our doorstep.

Other kids sneak out of their parent's house to meet girls or quaff illegally begotten booze. The Gates children? They just want to mess around with an iPad.
