There is a stereotype that “the iPhone is for the rich, and Android is for the poor”. But not always the powerful of this world follow this rule. For example, Pavel Durov, the founder of Telegram, has repeatedly talked about the iPhone in a negative way, preferring devices with the Android operating system and Bill Gates, who is one of the three richest people on the planet seems to be also an Android guy.
True, there was a time when the former head of Microsoft owned two devices – an iPhone and an Android smartphone. But more often than not, he preferred a device with a green robot; recognizing that it has an undeniable advantage over the iPhone – a large number of regular and third-party applications. At the same time, he admitted that for a long time he used exclusively an Apple smartphone and migration to Android was not easy for him at first.
Bill Gates: One of the richest people on the planet has chosen a foldable smartphone
And recently it became known which smartphone Bill Gates preferred for everyday use. On one of the forums, he was asked what kind of smartphone he uses, to which he replied that he has a Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 at his disposal. The choice in favor of a foldable smartphone was made due to the fact that it replaces his phone and portable PC. Samsung should be proud that Bill Gates preferred its device, and not Microsoft’s Surface Duo 2.
Gizchina News of the week
Contrary to what one might have thought; Bill Gates recently does not seem to have a clear opinion about the takeover of Twitter by Elon Musk. Asked about the subject, he indeed replied that it could be worse as it could be better. He also said he didn’t blame his counterpart for tackling him on the platform.
This is certainly the biggest news of recent days: Elon Musk has bought Twitter. Necessarily, the controversial reputation of the billionaire has led to reactions that are passionate to say the least: on the one hand his loyal followers defend his vision, on the other his detractors fear the trivialization of hate speech.
And Bill Gates in all this? The billionaire, who has gradually withdrawn from the tech world in recent years; continues to have strong opinions on the subject. We remember in particular his shock stance against Bitcoin in 2021; when he said loud and clear that digital currency is a disaster for the climate.
