Vogue magazine this month features an interview with philanthropist Melinda Gates.
When the topic of their children comes up, Mrs. Gates admits that world richest parents have banned iPods from their home, giving this irresistible quote:
There are very few things that are on the banned list in our household. But iPods and iPhones are two things we don't get for our kids.
When pressed on the topic Mrs. Gates admits that she's been tempted by the iPhone, saying:
Every now and then I look at my friends and say 'Ooh, I wouldn't mind having that iPhone'.
But think about it, would you bring home an iPod or iPhone if you were married to (or the kids of) Bill Gates? Probably not. And the kids, I'm sure that they're not terribly broken up about it. Besides, they probably leave their iPods in their lockers at school.
