Oh sh*t, here comes Gates. Hide your iPod!!

This story is making the rounds and gives me the chuckles:

Hide Your IPod, Here Comes Bill

To the growing frustration and annoyance of Microsoft's management, Apple Computer's iPod is wildly popular among Microsoft's workers.

"About 80 percent of Microsoft employees who have a portable music player have an iPod," said one source, a high-level manager who asked to remain anonymous. "It's pretty staggering."

The source estimated 80 percent of Microsoft employees have a music player -- that translates to 16,000 iPod users among the 25,000 who work at or near Microsoft's corporate campus. "This irks the management team no end," said the source.

I bet the same happens at SONY and other similar companies.
