    Your analyze please, is it Facebook & Microsoft popularity just coincidence?

    do we really different than Mark zuckerberg (Facebook founder, richest people #22 currently based on forbes, $34 Billion, and one of youngest in the list) or Bill gates (Microsoft founder, richest people #1 currently based on forbes, $82 Billion)?
    what make us cant like them?

    I really wanted someone here beat those two guys, in site/product popularity & money, it is me or you or other people

    There's always going to be a list of the richest people that others are trying to beat. If someone here beats them, then someone else will be asking for that person to get beat. There's always got to be a few people at the top ;)

    Yes.

    You = stupid, lazy, bitching about them being rich instead of taking action.

    They = intelligent, hard-working, taking action instead of bitching on BHW.

    LMFAO!

    Well, Mark got lucky by stealing someone's idea. Doesn't take intelligence to steal. So if you are a good thief, you can make billions (Just don't end up like Bernie Madoff).

    ah its like in The Social Network movie right? but the original Mark zuckerberg says its not true, its just fiction from the screen writer



    IDEA, with the right researched market, and with the right time correct? in the bill gates start time, its beginning of computer era, peoples created hardware, and need operating software to use it

    is it now social network era? so that Mark zuckerberg can do it too?

    You guys really have no clue.I guess the reason is also because of your age.
    Bill Gates got rich because he head a great idea on the right time ????
    HA HA HA good joke. No Bill Gates got #1 because he belongs to a special club
    which forced to kick IBM and get Microsoft on board.

    The story they invented back in that time was that the company made a call to IBM president on sunday to make a meeting where IBM president declined because he was out with his family (IBM was leading at that time without real competition).
    Bill Gates instead came instantly and since the company got mad about IBM they decided instantly to use now Microsoft as standard OS for their comps instead IBM.

    But if you know BG you know he belongs to a special group with a special agenda and i doubt somebody would belive that IBM lost their #1 position just because the president had no time on sunday.

    There is hard way to become a billionaire like Bill Gates... because you need to have brilliant idea to become a billionaire. But.... there is a good news... you can become a millionaire from zero... in 5 - 15 years if you have a proper mentor who becomes successful businessman. You can!

    I never watched the movie. I'm only stating what I read about the Winklevoss brothers. After all they did sue Mark. So either the brothers are lying or Mark is lying (I'm sure since he owns Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg would NEVER lie.).

    LOL why he would never lie because he owns facebook ? I do belive that he kinda stole the idea from these people, he just was the first one who actually took the idea for serious. Same for Bill Gates, he crushed his competitors as well as Steve Jobs.. In my opinion the real guy in the whole store is that guy Steve Wozniak, he did 90% of the job, IMO

    They both stole from other people, like Steve Jobs did too, and were also unscrupulous like that guy from Makerbot.

    They had insight to provide a service that was increasingly in demand and they were cutthroat in business.

    Do you know who Wozniack is? No, right? There's an explanation for that, and it explains why some become prominent and others don't.

    GUI's had existed years before apple started using them, so Microsoft didnt steal it they were inspired by it.

    Teh alluminade!!1!



    Anywhoo... the actual reason IBM lost out to Microsoft was because IBM couldn't see the writing on the wall. Instead of cutting their losses with OS/2 and firing MS/outflanking them, they gave Windows the endorsement and breathing room it needed to thrive and dominate the market. History might not have played out the same had IBM done things differently.
