    Great Video from Microsoft

    At CES yesterday, they showed a great video regarding Bill Gates last day on the job.

    AP reports:
    It showed a giddy Gates rapping, trying to lift weights, pleading for a spot in U2 and lobbying for a place on a presidential ticket. The video's cameo appearances from the likes of Brian Williams, Jay-Z, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Jon Stewart, Steven Spielberg and George Clooney provoked uproarious laughter -- not a common occurrence at a tech conference.
