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!
