Video Clip of Bill Gates with Windows Media Center PC froze up on CES.

Recently at the International Consumer Electronics Show, during a demonstration of digital photography, a Windows Media Center PC froze and wouldn't respond to Bill Gates' pushing of the remote control.

See the video clip of the event Here. (Requires Quicktime Installed)

Update : According to Sean Alexander, Media Center Product Manager, it was the IR repeater on the stage that failed. An IR repeater was used to transmit the remote control commands from the stage to the MCE PC running backstage. Details Here.

Gets a taste of his own medicine. Its a small victory for us poor folks.

Imagine you are driving crappy Suzuki FX and along the road you see a Mercedes Benz S-320 with a flat tire and the owner is standing bent over changing the flat - you drive by, ofcourse you don't stop becasue you logically deduce that if you had a flat would the Mercedes owner care to stop and offer help - HELL NO - you keep on driving but a smile comes on your face - You live for these moments

Thank you Bill Gates ;)
