Byron Acohido, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1996 while at The Seattle Times and now reports for USAToday, elicited one of the most lively responses we've seen from Bill Gates in a while. Here's the excerpt from his Q&A with the Microsoft chairman.
Q: What's the coolest thing about the upgraded Zune?
A: Look at this thing! (Holds up a Zune 8) Three or four years ago there was nothing like this. This is cool as heck. I'm finding music I haven't seen in 20 years. Hey, the Lovin' Spoonful? They're in this thing. I find one of their songs. I send it to friends I had an apartment with, it was actually 30 years ago. I can send it out to them and say, "Remember when we listened to this?" It's amazing.
To take a trip on the way-back machine with Bill, here's a link to MP3s of the Spoonful's greatest hits.
