Apple Forbidden Fruit in Gates Household

One of the richest women in the world covets an iPhone. But she’s not allowed to have one.

Melinda Gates — yes, of Microsoft’s Gates family — is quoted in the latest issue of Vogue magazine as saying, “Every now and then I look at my friends and say, ‘Ooh, I wouldn’t mind having that iPhone.’ ”

However, she and husband Bill Gates — who co-founded the Microsoft empire, which is of course the archenemy of Apple — have a policy against iPods and iPhones.
