Bill Gates and Rats

Bill Gates can not boast of having started 2008 very well. On 31st January he made a $45 billion admission of failure, failure in the internet search arena. He made an unsolicited bid for Yahoo! that sent Microsoft shares tumbling some 15%. To add insult to injury, Yahoo! snubbed the offer days later. Next the European Union smacked the internet giant with it’s biggest ever fine – a record $1.3 billion. Today Gates has been knocked off the top spot at the world richest person, a position he held unchallenged for thirteen years. In fact he has tumbled to third position behind US Investor Warren Buffet and Mexican telecom tycoon Carlos Slim Helú.

Being the Chinese year of the rat, I would suggest Bill invest’s a few dollars in one. It could bring him some much needed good luck
