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, www.mikerowesoft.com, he built to showcase his programming skills.

Full Story

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

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

Microsoft is all about suing anyone these days

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.
