NeoBytes :) Jimmy Fallon offers us more of Bill Gates' regrets

A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates admitted to an audience at Harvard that it was a "mistake" to require people push the Ctrl+Alt+Del buttons in order to log into older versions of Windows. As it turns out, that's not the only regret Bill Gates has had, at least according to Jimmy Fallon.

The host of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon used part of his monologue Friday night to give the TV and studio audience some more regrets that he thinks Bill Gates has had over the years. As posted on YouTube (go to the 2:10 mark to cut to the Bill Gates portion), the segment starts with a "quote" from Gates in which he says, "I wish I didn't wear that red golf shirt into Staples yesterday 'cause I ended up spending three hours helping people find toner."

Yes, that's just one of the zingers that Gates is alleged to have said for his regrets. The segment is made to look like it is the first of a regular series that will offer more of Gates' statements of mistakes. We doubt it will continue past this first segment but in real life Gates has admitted that when he was working at Microsoft the company made mistakes in the smartphone business, and that the implementation of Microsoft Bob didn't work well either.

A 5-minute clip from Jimmy Fallon once a year or so is all I need to remind myself that I'm not missing anything by not watching his show.

That being said, I want that 5 minutes back.

so dumb, Fallon isn't even remotely funny and laughs at the stupidest stuff... I don't know why NBC gave him Leno's job.....

not really funny enough to warrant an article of neowin in my opinion, however being from the UK im not really fallons target audience.
i also suspect that most non-US viewers see more of the these late night talkshow/standup shows in segments from family guy/south park/etc. seeing the real thing almost seems a parody of a parody!

I don't really find any of the jokes funny... I mean I'm English so that might be why but... they seem really unfunny.

Yeah he sucks. His voice just isn't right and he can't nail a punch line to save his life. You can't really tell if he's making a joke or just talking. I just think he's terrible. Typical cookie cutter comedy.

Being British might make a difference; the USA just doesn't have the same quality of cerebral humorists, like Benny Hill. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

The topical nature of the attempts at humor may be a cultural divide; however, I doubt that is the only disconnect, as I don't find him funny.

Agree, Jimmy Fallon is a no talent hack, how he manages to stay employed is beyond me. I'm guessing he is living off of nepotism...
