Bill Gates shows how to crash PCs in the Living Room

I am not sure if this was supposed to be some kind of satirical prequel to the much-anticipated Jobs' presentation at Macworld Expo next week. But on Wednesday, Bill Gates opened the CES in Las Vegas with a nice little keynote:billgates-conan.jpg


Sitting in a frightening big chair, Gates explained Late Night host Conan O'Brien, what to expect when Windows finally moves from the office to the living room, including exciting things like crashing the TV with a remote control or being pleasantly surprised by a Blue Screen of Death while trying to play a video game on the X-Box...
