NEWS: “I wish I was Bill Gates for a day”

About 2 weeks ago, Microsoft and Bill Gates were able to grant an 11 year olds wish of “being Bill Gates/CEO for a day” through the NBC television show, Three Wishes.  As part of Microsoft’s granting of the wish, we partnered with Lenovo to provide his school (Simi Elementary School in California) with a brand new computer lab — complete with Windows XP, Office 2003 with Learning Essentials, OneNote 2003, Microsoft Student 2006 and Encarta 2006.  Plus, our PA team will be onsite January 27th to help educate the principal, teachers and students on their new Microsoft software.  

The episode, which taped the day before Thanksgiving, is being aired this Friday, December 9th at 9 p.m. EST.  The segment will illustrate the boy’s time at the Redmond campus, his meeting with Bill Gates, and various activities related to the launch of Xbox 360
