All the Mashed Potatoes

Daring Fireball: All the Mashed Potatoes: Microsoft gets a lot of heat for not leaving enough on the table for others. My mother, who's English, and quite a character, once said of Bill Gates, "He sounds like someone who would come to your house for dinner and say, ‘Thank you. I think I'll have all […]
