Over 10,000 friend requests later, Bill Gates has sworn off Facebook. Fair enough, but he's "not that big at text messaging" and "not a 24-hour-a-day tech person," told a business forum in India. He even reads stuff on dead trees! "I read a lot and some of that reading is not on a computer."

I wonder if he's thought about a Kindle? I know I wish I had time to read real books. I'm glad he found time to write about his 1979 memories for Giz though, back when all you could read were like, things made out of paper, or poo scribbled on a wall, like the Marquis de Sade. [Yahoo via Neowin]
