Bill Gates Kicks Off Consumer Electronics Show

Last night Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates delivered his annual speech to open 2007's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas - showing off his usual hair-do and some exciting insight as to what lies ahead this year in electronics.


His speech touched on ways to link computers and the other hardware people use to play music and movies - and not just handheld devices. He showed off a new technology called Sync, to be built into a dozen Ford vehicles this year, that would connect music, address books and cellphone ring tones with the car stereo.

(This figure reflects an endowment of $30.1 billion as of July 31, 2006, plus $1.6 billion from the first installment of the Warren Buffett gift, recorded August 24, 2006.) According to its website, in developing countries, it focuses on improving health, reducing extreme poverty, and increasing access to technology in public libraries. In the United States, the foundation seeks to ensure that all people have access to a great education and to technology in public libraries. In its local region, it focuses on improving the lives of low-income families. Very inspiring!
