What You Missed Last Night: Bill Gates talks about his foundation (and robots that love)

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 26th 2010 11:02AM
This is an interesting Daily Show interview with Bill Gates where he talks about the work of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, but I'm posting it because of a funny question that Jon Stewart asks him about a certain Microsoft competitor.

There's nothing more dangerous than an unemployed Wilford Brimley

Whether you like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report or not, you have to be impressed by the speed at which they create some really funny things very quickly. This clip from The Colbert Report talks about the threats posed by Bill Gates, Henry Louis Gates, President Obama, and a certain old diabetic.

Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld go to Shoe Circus - VIDEO

by Brett Love, posted Sep 5th 2008 10:00AM

Bill Gates and Jerry SeinfeldWe talked about this when they announced that Jerry Seinfeld had signed on to promote Windows for Microsoft. If you were watching the big NFL kickoff Thursday night, you might have seen what that looked like. If you missed it, it's embedded after the jump. I've watched the commercial a few times now, and I'm torn. I agreed with Brad's take in the original post, that Seinfeld may be a few years past the point of ideal pitchman.

That being said, the first half of the commercial is quirky, and pretty funny. The idea of stumbling on Bill Gates in a discount shoe shop is an amusing place to start. And Gates does a good job as the straight man for Seinfeld. I really like the odd cut to the family watching through the glass. "They run tight." It all pays off nicely with that familiar image of Gates on his Platinum Shoe Circus Clown Club card. It loses steam when they leave the mall. A moist and chewy cake computer? I think the writers got tripped up by the iffy tag. The future. Delicious.

Friends stars do Windows 95 - VIDEO

by Richard Keller, posted May 6th 2007 3:31PM

Aniston and Perry do Windows 95Ah, the 1990's! Not quite as good as the 1980's but still an okay decade. I mean, it brought us Generation X, the Grunge movement (which basically involved dressing in flannel and not showering), Boy Bands and, courtesy of Bill Gates and Microsoft -- Windows 95. You remember Windows 95, don't you? It combined Windows and DOS into one comprehensive operating system, gave us our first look at Internet Explorer, and provided us with a chance to hop on to the information superhighway.

Why Bill Gates left The Daily Show so quickly - VIDEO

bill gates; the daily showAfter his plug for Vista interview with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show on Monday night, Bill Gates practically sprinted off the set and out of the studio... before the director had a chance to cut to commercial. I interpreted it as his uber-geekiness/social handicap kicking in. I mean, this guy doesn't do talk shows or even watch talk shows! He's too smart for such things.

Well, I was wrong.

Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart showed what really happened. I should've known. Video is after the jump:

The Daily Show: January 30, 2007

Jon Stewart"The Runaway Perjury": Scooter Libby news! It's been a while, so Jon recapped the entire story, complete with images to illustrate. Alfred E. Neuman (Bush) and Darth Vader (Cheney) were funny but expected, whereas using Monty Python's Gumby guys was a sweet choice.

Senior White House Correspondent John Oliver stopped by to elaborate. "Also, legalize pot! Ahh-hahaha!" made me laugh because, that's pretty much the way any guy under thirty tries to finish up a political conversation.

The Daily Show: January 29, 2007

Bill Gates"Clusterfuck to the White House": Democrats continue to pursue this whole "presidency" thing. It took me a few seconds before I could actually believe that Hillary Clinton's slogan, "Let the conversation begin!", was real. That's so... Hillary. However, her joke about evil men was not so Hillary.

"Obamania": FOX News got a little snooty when they outed Barack Obama and said that he went to a Muslim school. And then CNN got all "fact-checky" and "investigated". Pssht. Oh, and Chuck Norris filled in for Hannity on Hannity & Colmes?! How did I miss this?

TV's Top 5!: The coolest little Heroes

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Jan 30th 2007 12:54PM

Heroes' MicahDarn those Heroes and their wacky superpowers. As we all know, money is the real power on this terrestrial ground, but let's leave the Bill Gates discussion for later. Even if you can walk through walls to try and convince your girl to leave the psych ward to help you be a better parent, that still won't help you put some ramen on the table.

Unless your superhuman powers are passed onto your son as seen on last night's episode of Heroes. Micah's frustration with D.L's inability to pack him a decent lunch box had forced him to exert his super powers, which turns out to be ATM hypnotism. Sheesh, I would have stopped feeding my kids sooner if it would make them do this. I wonder if we can borrow Micah for a day or so to zap away some school loans.

Microsoft already pulled from the Daily Show pool

by Annie Wu, posted Jun 13th 2006 9:07AM
Microsoft loves TDSWhen it was announced that Microsoft signed on The Daily Show contributor Demetri Martin for some ads, many accused the company of trying to copy the success of the new Mac ads featuring Martin's fellow TDS contributor, John Hodgman. Well, in actuality, Microsoft has utilized the talents of several TDS correspondents for quite a while now. Samantha Bee, Rob Corddry, and Ed Helms have already done various video segments and appearances for Microsoft.

Still no word on which company has called dibs on Jon Stewart.

Bill Gates, Oprah launch screamfest at high school

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 16th 2006 8:31AM
oprah bill gatesOprah and Bill Gates showed up at a high school in San Diego yesterday, throwing the student body into a frenzy. The two billionaires were filming a segment for an upcoming episode of Oprah, about Bill and Melinda Gates' efforts to reform schools. In 2003, the Gates Foundation gave $11 million to the San Diego Unified School District, with orders to reform three high schools. The district used the money to create six smaller schools with specialties such as business, international studies, media and science. Each school has about 400 students, compared to the 1,400 that were previously in each large school. Oprah and Bill kept the visit on the down-low, in order to keep the media-types away. They filmed segments with nine students.
