The Engadget – Bill Gates Interview
The Engadget Interview: Bill Gates, Pt. 1 – Engadget – www.engadget.com / Well I guess he doesn’t play favorites after all.
After giving an interview a few months back to influential gadget site Gizmodo, Gates is back this time with an interview for Peter Rojas of Engadget. Nice work Peter — and Bill, I think that your doing these kinds of interviews, your openness and transparency, and a willingness to engage the blogging community will pay you and Microsoft back in spades down the line.
Some of my favorite quotes:
On Xenon, the new Xbox: “were going to have this next generation machine out so that its going to be timed with high definition becoming very mainstream.”
On the Xbox and Media Center integration: “So the high-end scenario for us is youve got Media Center PC, thats where your state is, but then youve got your Xenon out that are connecting up to that. Xenon itself will have some neat capabilities, but were in pre-introduction here, and that group is brilliant about the unveiling. Theyve been very coy up til this point and I wouldnt want to steal any of their thunder.”
And as the teaser. Stay tuned for more on Media Center from Bill Gates tomorrow.
