First off, my first week as an NYU grad student has been, needless to say, very hectic. After only having one class, my free time has dwindled down to almost nothing. I’ll try to keep this blog updated as often as possible, but school comes first. On with the blogging.
I’m watching the NFL Kickoff game, which has the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants playing against the Washington Redskins. During a commercial break I watched a commercial featuring Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Gates. Yes, that Bill Gates. The multibillionaire one.
I immediately thought to myself, “Microsoft must really not be doing well these days for Bill Gates to have to make a commercial.” Turns out it was a commerical for Microsoft, but interesting nonetheless.
After an attempt at comedy with Seinfeld, Gates hints that the future of computers will feature delicious cake that people can eat while they work. Then the Windows logo is shown and a voice proclaims something about Microsoft and the future.
The future indeed, because nobody likes WIndows Vista, the Microsoft of the present.
A bit farfetched for the sports theme, but I did see it while watching a football game.
