BBspot Mailbag

Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.

Subject: ????per your article on Bill Gates and evil

I guess I'm a bit dense. Could you explain your article "Microsoft Purchases Evil From Satan"? I am a sincere Christian (not a fanatic religious person but a fanatic for Jesus person-He says His church is in the hearts of the believers and not in any certain human church/institution-my feeling is that He doesn't go to churches much because they don't really want Him there messing up their own little agenda's). I can see the good and the evil in the computer but your article confuses me. I don't know who you are or what your beliefs are or your agenda is. Could you please share?

I replied that I didn't have an agenda. I was just reporting the news. She replied...

I mean who are you and what are you saying in plain words about Bill Gates? I thought he was an OK guy. I know he gave scads of money to the middle grade schools in Vanc. WA where he came from to be used for reading programs that I thought was super good. I really want to understand where you are coming from in your article. I'm a mother, grandmother who lives in a small valley in WA. I go back and forth on the whole computer question. It is like so much that could be used for evil or good. What is your idea of how it is being or going to be used for evil?

My brain hurts.

Somebody is worried about Apple selling ads on the iPod, in this discussion board thread...

apple has also joined the ranks of other great companies where they are being sued for improper business practices. they are screwing over their resellers to eek out more money.

Try Harder

About once or twice a week I'll get an email from somebody in Nigeria with a credit card who wants to buy lots of t-shirts from the BBshop. This guy will have to try a bit harder to entice me...
