Though the iPad and the iPad mini were some of the most wished for devices this year, the children of Bill and Melinda Gates didn’t find any iDevices under the Christmas tree. The ultra rich Microsoft duo, who are parents to three kids, don’t allow the children to have Apple products.
In an piece with a radio station earlier today, Melinda Gates told interviewers that though her children ask for Apple products like iPads, “they get Windows technology.”
She adds, “The wealth from your family came from Microsoft, so why would we invest in a competitor?”
Still, though the Gates children aren’t allowed to use Apple iDevices, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs had an amicable relationship. When Jobs was sick, Gates visited him, and the two even gave a talk about their rivalry back in 2007.
