More Tech Troopers: Recreating iconic images from the life of Bill Gates

The Sun workstation

This image was inspired by a funny commercial for Internet Explorer in which Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer drive around town while listening to the song “Da Da Da (I Don't Love You You Don't Love Me Aha Aha Aha)” by the German band Trio. Along the way, they pick up an old Sun Sparc workstation from the trash and throw it in the back seat of the car. (The ad is a spin-off of a classic Volkswagen commercial.)

"Geekend blog and newsletter are coming to an end this year in order for us to focus all of our resources on business technology topics." You put out this crap and get rid of the Geekend and Jay! For a second time you are getting rid of Jay G.! Let's hope this isn't what you consider the "business technology topics". Seriously, do you have a CLUE at TR? Really? I will need to SERIOUSLY reconsider even bothering with this site if this is the type of humor your organization finds funny. I don't even particularly find the articles or especially the rehashed articles enlightening. Time to reconsider my TRPro subscription.

An amusing look at "historic" moments. For whatever reasons I missed both the pie and car events when they occurred; the links were invaluable. I loved the commercial; as a curb picker I have done the same, and sometimes have the same "what was I thinking" moment. The pie video revealed that it was a "triple pie" conspiracy.
