The government is closing in on Bill Gates in the Microsoft antitrust trial. If Gates has to do time, he may get a taste of his own medicine when Big Louie in Cellblock 3 tries to forcibly install his "Inmate Explorer."
Jesus and Satan were having an ongoing debate about who managed to get the most
use out of his computer. This had been going on for days, and God finally
had enough of it. So He set up a test: whoever could be the most
productive after two hours on the computer would be the winner.
So down they sat at the keyboards and began typing. They did spreadsheets. They wrote reports. They sent faxes. They sent out e-mail. They sent out e-mail with attachments. They downloaded. They uploaded. They made cards. They did every known job and several unknowns.
But just a few minutes before the two hours were up, lightning flashed, thunder rolled, and the rains came down hard. Of course, the electricity went off.
Satan was furious. When the electricity came back on he screamed, "I lost it all when the power went off! What am I going to do?"
Jesus, however, just sat and smiled. He turned his computer back on. The screen glowed, and when he pushed "Print", all his files were still there, printing out.
"How did you do it?" Satan asked.

If _____ made toasters
If IBM made toasters, they would make just one. People would submit bread for overnight toasting. IBM would project an eventual worldwide market of five to six of these big blue toasters.
Microsoft made toasters, you would have to buy a toaster every
time you bought a loaf of bread. The new TOASTER '95 would be
overpriced, take up 95% of your kitchen space, and falsely claim
to be the very first toaster to let you control the darkness of
Everyone would hate MICROSOFT toasters, but would buy them anyway because most of the good bread will only work with their TOASTER '95. Additionally, once you have a TOASTER '95 it's nearly impossible to get rid of it.
If Radio Shack made toasters, their sales associates would try to sell you the entire store-full, but would be able to tell you nothing about any of them -- and would get angry if you asked. You could also buy the toaster in individually bagged pieces for home assembly.
If Microsoft Built Cars
they repainted the lines on the road, you'd have to buy a new
Occasionally your car would just die on the highway for no reason. Accept this, restart and drive on.
Occasionally, executing a maneuver would cause the car to stop and fail to restart. You'd have to re-install the engine. For some strange reason, you'd just accept this too.
You could only have one person in the car at a time, unless you bought "Car 95" or "Car NT". But then you'd have to buy more seats.
Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was twice as reliable, five times as fast, twice as easy to drive - but it would only run on five percent of the roads.
The oil, engine, gas and alternator warning lights would be replaced with a single "General Car Fault" light.
People would get excited about "new" features in Microsoft cars, forgetting completely that they had been available in other cars for years.
We'd all have to switch to Microsoft gas and auto fluids.
New seats would force everyone to have the same size butt.
The airbag system would say, "Are you sure?" before going off.
If you were involved in a crash, you would have no idea what happened.
Microsoft wouldn't build their own engines, but form a cartel with their engine suppliers. The engine would be a side-valve design so you could still use Model T Ford parts on it.
Microsoft cars would have a special radio/cassette player which would only be able to listen to Microsoft FM and play Microsoft cassettes.
Microsoft would do well, because even though they don't own any roads, all road manufacturers would give away Microsoft cars for free!
If you couldn't afford to buy a new car, you could borrow your friend's and copy it.
Whenever you bought a car, you would have to reorganize the ignition a few days until it worked.
You would need an upgrade to run cars on a highway next to each other.
