Gates Pushes Vista on 'Daily Show' Visit
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
The future of air travel came up briefly on late night TV last night, although we have to tell you the news was disappointing. Our last word in business belongs to Jon Stewart, host of "The Daily Show," who interviewed Microsoft founder Bill Gates. He was promoting his new Vista operating system. Stewart asked about that software, but also asked about other new technologies.
(Soundbite of TV show, "The Daily Show")
Mr. JON STEWART (Host, "The Daily Show"): When are we going to get jetpacks?
(Soundbite of laughter)
Mr. BILL GATES (Founder, Microsoft): We're not working on that one.
Mr. STEWART: What?
INSKEEP: Gates says he's working on robots and TV over the Internet, but not jetpacks. At least not for now.
(Soundbite of music)
INSKEEP: And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
And I'm Renee Montagne.
