Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Not quite the National Enquirer

The Gawker media company has started a new blog devoted to Silicon Valley gossip. So far, there just isn’t that much to Valleywag . Sure, there’s lots about Larry Ellison, but in tech circles, gossiping about Larry Ellison is about as banal as dishing about Brad and Angelina. Here’s hoping that Valleywag becomes a little more compelling.

Oh, but there was this quote from Bill Gates:

“My tax return in the United States has to be kept on a special computer because their normal computers can’t deal with the numbers.”

Perhaps Gates should use Google’s extensive server farm to handle all those zeroes.
