A young man named Linus Torvalds was walking from one part of Manhattan to another one when he saw - him. A legendary Bill Gates was standing nearby. He went to him and said:"Mr. Gates, my name is Linus. Nice to meet you." Then they shook hands. "Could I ask you for a favor?" Gates was a little suprised, but said:"OK". "I have a very important client, which will meet me here in approx five minutes. Could you come by and say Hello?" Gates said:" Sure. No problem." Five minutes later a man stepped to Linus and they began talking. Gates thought that a time was ripe for him to approach the pair. Then he said:"Hi, Linus. It's me - Bill. How are you?" Linus turned to Gates and with disgust in his eyes said:"C'mon, Bill, give me a break. Don't you see that I am busy!?!"

I heard last week about a man who, after hearing that people were burning CD's, took his CD's and cassettes and burn them in - microwave ...

15 years ago.
A woman said to our admin in school:"My CD doesn't work and now I can't get it out."
He take a look and said:"You stupid women. What have you done!??" She managed to stuff her CD into the floppy disc slot so deep that only a small portion was peering outside ...

A wife said to her geek husband:"Husband, can you say something something humiliating and the same time something nice about me in the same sentence?"
Geek:"Sure. Wife, I want that a devil takes you with you, but at the same time I want that devil to be - me."
"Oh, how nice."
Later.
Geek:"Wife, can you think something better?"
She smiles:"Your's is bigger than your brother's."

Geek laughed as he thought that she was thinking about the size of the monitor ...

Tim Cook announced Tuesday the release of Apple’s long-rumored watch, the latest in wearable technology. Here are some features of the new device:

- 13-megapixel camera enables users to take crystal-clear pictures of wrist
- Allows wearers to start and stop the flow of time
- Discreet, but not so discreet that anyone would mistake it for a regular watch
- Comes in a variety of colors and styles to express your personal submission to the planet’s dominant tech company
- Adjustable ticking volume
- All the convenience of a traditional watch that needs to be charged every 12 hours
- Built-in thinkpiece regarding the increased connectivity yet simultaneous isolation of the millennial generation
- Small size and intricate circuitry able to drive twice as many Chinese workers to suicide as iPhone
- Makes it easier for muggers to see whether or not you’re carrying an expensive electronic device
- Another screen to throw into your current rotation of things you look at

But apart from that... it's 'awesome'

True story from Munich:

“Steve Ballmer tried to convince our mayor that it would be a bad decision to switch to open source, because it’s not something an administration can rely on. But some members of the city council said: what are we, if one member of a big company simply comes here, and he thinks he can just switch our opinions?”
And it just got worse for Microsoft’s boss. “Our mayor was preparing for a meeting with Steve Ballmer, and because English is not his native language, he asked his interpreter: ‘What shall I say if I don’t have the right words?’ And the interpreter replied: ‘Stay calm, think and say:"What else can you offer?’
Later on during the meeting, our mayor was quickly at the point where he had nothing to say to Ballmer, except for ‘What else can you offer?’ several times. Years later, he heard that Ballmer was deeply impressed by how hard he was in negotiations!”
