It’s okay to take a pic of Bill Gates with an iPad

Although, you probably shouldn’t anyway.


You would expect Bill Gates to throw a fit if you tried to take a picture of him using an iPad, right? Push you away, and smash your $600 tablet on the ground and trounce till it breaks, all the while seething with rage and anger, ready to pounce on anything that has a half eaten apple printed on it? But no, he is a better man than that, we guess.

When Gates was spotted by a group of fans in London, they gathered around him and politely asked him for a photograph. The only problem? They pulled out an Apple iPad to make it happen. While Gates remained calm and carried on with the posing, his wife Melinda Gates jested with a “You can’t use an iPad!” before adding that she was kidding and the photo can be taken.

The entire incident was taken on video and it is published below.


Yes, yes, it is a slow news day.
