Bill Gates: "With music, having MTV as a partner is a great thing. We think they can get the word out, do some neat things. We're also doing a lot in Messenger to make it so you can share playlists, so you can listen to different things. The next version of Messenger has music as one of the big breakthrough scenarios."Yeah Right! Except partnering with MTV for music expertise is laughable, stupid and very very lame. You can't FIND music on MTV anymore. Check their schedule, Next, followed by the Real World, followed by My Own, followed by another episode of Next, Punk'd, and the list goes on. These are all reality-based television shows. Where's the F@!?ING music? Teaming up with MTV for music is like teaming up with McDonalds for tacos. Sure if this were 1984, partnering with MTV would be totally sweet. But in 2006 it's just sad. Once again, Bill is behind the curve. Apple is flying high with iTunes, so now Microsoft has to do yet another "me too" by making their own music store (apparently MSN Music didn't work out?)... except they team up with a has-been and give it a lamer name like "URGE" When is Microsoft going to stop being the bloated whore of the tech industry so they can be lean, hungry, and bleeding edge? When is Bill Gates going to understand that these sloppy "partnerships" are irrelevant when we're talking about a ship that's already sailed. I'm tired of Bill being late to the dock, then renting a little rowboat thinking that he'll be able to catch up... all the while screaming to the media about how Microsoft is doing all this cool shit that, in reality, is only cool to him. Bill I think you should stick to fighting Ballmer (10 MB; 5:41 min, you really should watch this). Man McTacos would be sweet.

Correct me if I'm wrong...
