“of course they ask (for Apple gadgets)”.This kind of reply makes it clear that a Windows family can never get an Apple gadget. From a long time Windows is trying to compete with iOS but this seem a bit difficult so far. Apple is rapidly improving its graph of popularity while Windows is still cooping up. After the huge success of iPad Mini and iPhone 5, it is now even more difficult to compete with Apple, to do so Windows have introduced Windows Phone 8 to beat Apple.
“But they get Windows technology,” she added.
“The wealth from our family came from Microsoft so why would we invest in a competitor?”
This response from Mrs.Gates was a bit unfair because in 2009, before Windows had launched its smartphones, Mrs.Gates once stated that she had been tempted by Apple products herself. She also mentioned in an interview to Vogue magazine that:
“Every now and then I look at my friends and say ‘Ooh, I wouldn’t mind having that iPhone’,”But guess what ? The eldest daughter of the couple was also clicked with an iPhone, when she was in Sydney. Melinda Gates has always been credited for her massive support and love she has shown for her husband, who she married in 1994.
Mr Gates told The Telegraph he had written to and visited Steve Jobs, Apple's late CEO during his illness. He several times stated that:
“We spent literally hours reminiscing and talking about the future,” he said.So guys even Windows family need some new changes.
“I told Steve about how he should feel great about what he had done and the company he had built.
“There was no peace to make. We were not at war. We made great products, and competition was always a positive thing.”
