Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has weighed in on the antitrust scrutiny facing Big Tech. His take: They all “deserve rude, unfair, and tough questions.” He’s right.
Unfortunately, Gates’s comments come via a somewhat insipid podcast called Armchair Expert. In the latest episode, the hosts pepper Gates with important questions related to his favorite color, his favorite movie, the musician Prince, Diet Coke, and other trivialities. But if you can get through the meandering 90 minutes---I did so only with great difficulty---Gates is finally able to weigh in on some more relevant topics in personal computing today.
