MacMade Digest 2-6

Greeting on this very wet Friday evening,

Be sure to visit <http://www.apple.com> as the page has been redone with
the new snail G3 commercial look! Also if you missed the commercial the
last 2 nights (NBC aired it twice last night also). You can view it at

It's not every day that the world's richest man gets a pie
in the face.  And we would be remiss if we let the Belgian
pie incident go by without a top ten list in its honor.  So
herewith, the top ten likely Microsoft responses to Gates'
pie in the face:

10. Microsoft announces that Robert Lessig's fingerprints
    were found on the pie plate.

9.  Company plans 1999 release of "Visual Pie++ for Windows."

8.  Microsoft waffles on release of Belgian version of
    Windows 98.

7.  Hostess fruit pies removed from Microsoft campus vending
    machines (three days later, a hoard of pies is found in
    Nathan Myhrvold's office).

6.  Bill Gates has pie-proof "Popemobile" built for future
    public appearances.

5.  From now on, all new Microsoft CD-ROMs will be square,
    because Gates "freaks out" when he sees flat circles.

4.  New Microsoft game released: X-Wing vs. Pie Fighter.

3.  Microsoft buys Mrs. Smiths Frozen Pie Company--and shuts
    it down.

2.  MS programmers no longer allowed to use value of pi when
    programming vector-drawing algorithms.

1.  After a lengthy investigation, Microsoft reluctantly
    admits that the pie incident was staged by Wagner-Edstrom to
    divert public attention from the DOJ hearings.
