IRS computer system hit by 'Bill Gates Bug'

It looks like Bill Gates has found a major source of inspiration in this year's Annual WEF meeting.

Having left Davos and being freed from the self-imposed obligation to make off-the-wall predictions, the Microsoft Chairman has subsequently launched into ridiculing web censorship, a subtle way of rubbing salt in rival Google's wounds.

And to top it all, there are some really funny remarks on the US Tax Authorities' ineptness to handle 11-digit tax applications. That's obvious material for follow-up jokes, but first prize goes to John Paczowsky in today's GMSV: 'Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates [apparently] wonders why the IRS is still taking his "640K ought to be enough for anyone" comment seriously'.
