    "Two years from now, spam will be solved." -Bill Gates 2004

    I was just reading a few interesting quotes and I found this one quite funny, so I thought I would post it here.

    hahaha true, is Bill Gates always drunk or something? It's like saying two years from now streets of the world will all be clean. :D

    I don't see how spam can ever be tackled. There will always be someone that will create new ways of spam. Sure it can be limited but in my opinion it will never be tackled unless the government of the world decides to take control over everything and decides to monitor all activity, which would be breaking our rights in one way or another.

    Big-mouth Gates also said this:
    He praised the "high level of IQ" at Google's research team, but said "we will catch them". (Really?!!!)

    More Bill Gates' Crackers:

     [B] Gates reveals his 'magic solution' to spam[/B]
    
    The battle to rid the world's in-boxes of spam has got itself a heavyweight
    champion--Bill Gates--making an even more heavyweight promise: an end 
    to the e-mail plague within two years.  Speaking at the World Economic 
    Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Gates told a group of delegates that he could 
    crack spam by 2006. The [URL="http://news.cnet.com/For-Gates%2C-a-knight-to-be-remembered/2100-1022_3-5147163.html"]soon-to-be-knighted[/URL] Microsoft chairman added 
    that with the help of some canny tech measures, spammers would be hit 
    where it hurts--in their fat wads of Viagra-inspired cash. 
    
     One of the suggestions on Gates' antispam checklist is setting those 
    sending e-mails a simple brainteaser, or asking their PCs to do an easy 
    computation. If you're sending an odd e-mail or two, the time and difficulty 
    wouldn't pose much of a problem. For machines belching out huge amounts 
    of spam day in and day out, however, the cost and computing power 
    needed to send the e-mails off through the ether would be huge. 
    
     Microsoft researchers earlier this year demonstrated the technology, which 
    is called [URL="http://news.cnet.com/Microsoft-Research-seeks-better-search/2100-1012_3-997350.html"]No Spam at any (CPU) speed[/URL]. 
    
     Gates also said Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft is working on another 
    "magic solution" to the spam problem--this time with a focus on the 
    identifying the sender. 
    
     The "payment at risk" system would involve e-mail recipients setting a level 
    of payment that would tax the sender, if its e-mail were rejected, low or 
    high, depending on how greatly recipients were bothered by the unwanted 
    e-mail. 
    
     The idea goes like this: If you receive an e-mail from an old school friend, 
    and you're happy to receive it, the sender doesn't pay. If it's another offer 
    of a porn subscription, you reject it, and the spammer is forced to cough 
    up. 
    
     That's the theory, at least. But Martino Corbelli, a spokesman for U.K. 
    spam-filtering company [URL="http://www.surfcontrol.com/"]SurfControl[/URL], doesn't buy it. "I think the idea is a 
    nice one, and I don't disagree that in a few years' time, the spam epidemic 
    will reduce--that will happen. But as for charging someone when you don't 
    know who they are and where they are--it's not feasible," he told 
    Silicon.com. 
    
     The tech old guard of spam fighting--the humble mail filter--wasn't entirely 
    rejected by Gates. He acknowledged that filters have their part to play in 
    the spam struggle but said he believed that they wouldn't ultimately solve 
    the problem. 
    
     Gates' spam offensive has left Corbelli unimpressed. "[B][COLOR=Lime]I think he's right on 
    the timescale; [/COLOR][/B][COLOR=Lime][B]I think he's wrong on the method. We simply don't 
    have the infrastructure to know who to charge[/B][/COLOR]," he said.

    Bill, please stay actively retired for life! :D You're giving bloody new ideas to your spa*mmer friends! :eek:

    @ Someone,
    create a e-book on Bill Gates' such special crackers -- a sure way to become a millionaire in 2010!

    I bet microsoft made IE suck so bad, so they could spam the internet with malware and easily inject more apps into every windows users pc easily, to in turn make them richer. I bet he is a PPI master :p

    I must admit, they have one hell of a marketing team to launch windows7, basically a second attempt at windows vista. I bet it will still see 3 services packs!

    Not even Google has solved spam though...

    While it can't be "solved", it surely isn't the same of 4 years or 10 years ago as you know. The spam of 10 years ago (random guy harvesting a few addresses for his personal page or companies doing it in the open "as marketing") has died or is bashed down easily. Nowadays "serious spam" is Botnet job, Xrumer service or Indian outsourced task. It doesn't die until it evolves.

    He didn't actually said that you know, it's a misquote or taken out of context or something. But it captures his lunacy quite well.

    That spam stuff is a pretty hilarious statement since Microsoft is responsible for most spam on the internet even if we don't even count the windows :)
