masala: the international spice
Flavor your world with masala

Gizmodo also posted some oddly
disturbing pics of a young Gates.

Gizmodo interviewed Bill Gates and posted the interview on his blog in four segments: blogs and RSS, Microsoft's vision, XBox 2, and digital rights management.

I liked how the interview ended:

Gizmodo: I think we just disagree.
Gates: No, I actually don't think we disagree.

Gizmodo was arguing that the Microsoft DRM, which limits the how often a file can be copied, shouldn't be placed on purchased music. Gates said the DRM was just a piece of software and that anyone (from doctors to musicians) could use it to protect their information.

Unfortunately, it seems the DRM can't protect another group - its users.
