Microsoft Says “Let Them Eat Cake”

Microsoft proves that even if you spend $300 million, you can’t make viewers think that Microsoft is cool, no matter how much Bill Gates wiggles his butt. It’s one-whole minute of scripted “banter” about Conquistador shoes before the 10-million dollar man, Jerry Sienfeld, asks Gates, “I imagine over the years you’ve mind-melded your magnum Jupiter brain to those other Saturn-ring brains at Microsoft… are they ever going to come out with something that’ll make our computers moist and chewy like cake…?” And then Bill Gates… well, you have to watch the clip. Let’s just say again, none of this makes me feel any better about Microsoft products.

    greetings joe,

    I have been working on my family geneaology for several
    years, this is the first time that I have come accross
    your name.

    I am looking for family that has roots in Key West, FLA.
    My great-grandmothers maiden name was Francesca Bustillos,
    her family was originally from Spain (Barcelona/Madrid).
    Appreciate any help with this.

    Greetings. I’m not entirely certain of my father’s family history. I know my great-grandmother on my father’s side came from New Mexico and then moved to California, where I’m originally from. I had also heard that there was a Lake Bustillos I think in Sonora Mexico. Beyond those two bits of info that’s all I can tell you about my family name. As far as roots in Florida, I’ve only been here in since June and I wasn’t aware of any other Bustillos in the area. Interesting. I do need to see if any of the aunts or cousins has looked into this further. Sorry I couldn’t be of any greater help. jbb

    I watched it three times . . . no I wasn’t trying to avoid taking a sleeping pill in the middle of the night . . . and my reaction is still . . . WHAT!?!

    If this is the answer to the Mac v. PC ad campaign it just goes to prove that creativity is the most lacking ingredient on the Microsoft campus . . . and Jerry – W H Y ? ! ? this is almost as embarrassing for you as Michael Jordan’s foray into baseball . . .

    Thanks for the reply Joe. I am am originally from L.A.. My family
    moved from Forth Worth, TX in the 50’s. Prior to that it was Key West, Fla.
    before that, Barcelona, Spain.

    It would be interesting to find out if your family knows more.

    take care,
