Mike Rowe vs Bill Gates
A 17-year-old Canadian high school student is facing calls from the US computer giant Microsoft to change the name of a website,, he built to showcase his programming skills.

Full Story

Now you can't even have a name that sounds like Microsoft. :rolleyes:

Notice how Microsoft's lawyer's are called "Smart & Biggar". That made me laugh.

Microsoft is all about suing anyone these days :lol:
At least the guy gets loads of free commercial, it said he had something like 250 000 visitors lately :)

I can't believe this. If I had the money right now, I would support him just because I like the creativity he used in thinking of then name.
