44. FATHER OF NT BUILDS WIRELESS ABODE

Does Windows NT creator Dave Cutler know something about the 
software Bill Gates doesn't? Cutler's apparently building a new 
house in which everything is controlled mechanically - light 
switches and all - unlike Gates' recently-built lakeside computer 
system which is fitted with add-ons such as bedrooms and garages.


45. HOMELESS TRAMP THE AISLES AT COMDEX ENTERPRISE

By initial appearances, it seemed the recent market turmoil had 
taken immediate effect on attendees at the Comdex Enterprise trade 
show last week in San Francisco. Strolling round the sparsely-
populated aisles was a higher proportion than usual of attendees 
sporting matted hair, tattered clothing and glazed expressions. But 
exasperated exhibitors - not including Microsoft Corp, which pulled 
out of the event at the last minute - eventually realized that the 
promise of plentiful tee-shirts, encouraged by hastily placed free 
passes for the show printed in the local press to boost attendance, 
had led some of the Bay Area's less famous entrepreneurs to cash in 
on the chance of free winter clothing. The situation apparently led 
to some pointed exchanges between exhibitors and show organizers.
