  Bill Gates loved the fake Olympics fireworks THESE DAYS image is everything. Truth doesn’t matter any more in the age of short attention spans. If in doubt, you should ask Bill Gates, or the Chinese Olympic Commitee in charge of Fake Fireworks, or the US government, or a certain presidential candidate hopeful, once presented as ‘father of the year’, or “us” the all-powerful news media. This brings some interesting thoughts about image, perception, and the quality of this IT world we are immersed in. Just as the news broke out that the Chinese organisers aired fake computer-generated fireworks during the Olympics opening ceremony and that the little girl that sang was actually lip-syncing, we learn that his holiness Bill Gates himself praised China for the “fantastically managed” Olympics. Of course, it all depends on what he meant by “managing”. The third definition of the word at reads “to dominate or influence (a person) by tact, flattery, or artifice.” Of course, Bill Gates’ juggernaut corporation Microsoft is full of experts at “managing”. They “managed” to convince everybody at the time that Windows 3.x over MS-DOS was much better and worth using instead of Unix, Apple’s OS, or IBM’s own 32-bit OS/2 2.0. IBM, in turn “managed” to convince a bunch of us that it was really committed long-term about beating Microsoft and the future of its OS. Back to Microsoft, it “managed” to convince the U.S. government that a break-up wasn’t necessary after the DOJ-Microsoft trial, the one that ended in a ruling against the firm. A ruling achieved in part after Microsoft presented an edited – in other words, fake – videotape wherein it tried to prove that if you separated Windows 98 from Internet Explorer the system would become unstable, slower and would potentially crash. It was soon found that Microsoft’s video was heavily edited and showed different desktops from different machines. Source:…Part of Olympic display altered in broadcast
