Bill Gates Says Goodbye To Microsoft Shares…Millions At A Time!

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

bill gates sells millions of shares of microsoft

What's the deal, Bill? You ready to make the move to Mac???

Bill Gates has been selling off Microsoft shares by the millions, which is likely to make investors in the company pret-ty concerned.

Regulatory docs show that Gates sold 5 million shares on Feb 3, and ANOTHER 5 million on Feb 2!

According to SEC records, Bill has sold 90 million shares in the past year! At the moment, he holds 591 million shares, which equals around 7% of 8.4 billion total, and he continues to be the "largest single stockholder"…for now.

Microsoft officials have said that Gates is selling off Microsoft shares and investing elsewhere in an effort to diversify his holdings.

Is it just us, or does it sounds like Bill Gates has lost some confidence in Microsoft?

We suppose we can't blame him. If this were 1995, we'd be shocked, but times are changing and Microsoft shares just ain't what they used to be!

Thoughts???

Bill Gates Comments On Egypt's Internet Shutdown

Filed under: PolitikKatie CouricTech Talk

To quote Katie Couric in this interview, the Internet has become the "epicenter of our lives." Someone who helped it get to that point is Bill Gates.

That's why Katie invited him on her online video series to talk about Egypt's President Mubarak pulling the plug on the Internet on the entire country.

Check out the video (above) to hear Bill talk about Mubarak's decision and how it proves he's "afraid of the truth" his country will find on the World Wide Web.

Well said!

Spend Your Sunday Mornings With The Rev. Al Sharpton!

Filed under: TV News

alllwenn2830783.jpg

The Rev. Al Sharpton is coming to TV with his own show! Our only question is: what took him so long?

Tomorrow, at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's 40th Annual Legislative Conference, the good reverend will officially announce the launch of his Sunday-morning syndicated TV show called Education Superhighway.

Cleared for 150 markets, the 30-minute show will be in the vein of other roundtable and news discussion programs, but focus primarily on education. Sharpton's production company, ESH Holding, has already lined up some interesting guests, including the Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and Bill Gates.

Interesting. If he can garner guests like that with consistency, there might actually be an audience for this.

Would U tune in to Rev. Al's show?

George Lucas Loses Billions…By Choice

Filed under: Inspiration

Don’t Worry, George Lucas will still have plenty of billions leftover.

The creator of the multi-billion dollar Star Wars franchise has agreed to take part in The Giving Pledge, which consists of a group of billionaires who agree to give away half of their wealth to charity.

The pledge was started by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, who could easily part with half of their respective fortunes. For those members who feel they need to shed even more billions, there is no cap on how much money one can donate to the pledge (Buffett has pledged 99% off his wealth).

We’re very impressed.

All of a sudden, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace seems slightly more watchable, and we might be less inclined to roll our eyes the next time we watch one of those Windows 7 “I’m a PC” commercials.

Would U donate half your money if U were a multi-billionaire?
