    I found this one amazing Apple Fact out there on the web:
    Bill Gates' house was partially designed using a Macintosh computer.
    Google that, its true, I can't believe it! Why wasn't Windows good enough for him to make his own house, huh? Ok, sorry I just had to post that.

    Which website is this. It may not be true.

    Also, the architect would design/build it. He doesn't oversee what computer the architect uses.

    did you know apple used to use windows to design their motherboards? why weren't apple computers good enough? because the software only ran on windows! of course, now i don't know where the reference is.

    From what I remember. The architect had Apples in his office that his company used. He never specified whether Bill Gates house was designed with them or other machines in the office. I would assume both.

    Satan also wrote part of the Bible. No man, it's true. And...erm... everything I say is false. I am a total liar. :eek: ;) :D

    Thats is so true, yet very sad! The coolest apple reseller near me has all the gear and everything for the mac I would even need, but then when you go to pay, the iMac runs virtual PC with windows POS software.

    You know the advert for Sony's Bravia range of LCD TVs where they chuck a bunch of coloured balls down a street in SF. Well when I first saw that I assumed it was done with CGI but I saw the 'making of' the advert promo on a Sony display in a Sony shop and its actually done for real, looked a lot of fun, and not only that but in every clip where the making of crew were filming the advert crew you could clearly see that the advert was produced on Apple laptops and desktops. I'd have thought that Sony would've at least placed their own Vaio in shot to make us believe they were used.
