Bill Gates Gifts South Korean President a Beautiful Xbox 360

Illustration for article titled Bill Gates Gifts South Korean President a Beautiful Xbox 360

When Bill Gates met South Korea President Lee Myung-bak earlier this month, he didn't come with a free copy of Vista in hand. Instead, he gifted Lee Myung-bak with 1 of 100 similar hand-crafted Xbox 360s entitled "Peace." The work of the head of a Korean company named Gookbo, each Xbox is decorated with mother-of-pearl ume flowers and butterflies to represent patience and perseverance. And it's all just touching enough for us to refrain from the predictable 360 reliability jabs. [fareastgizmos]

@Accelerata: Well I apologize for my comment and an attempt at humor. I wasn't aware that you were serious about your lack of understanding in regards to Bill's present to the South Korean President.

I wasn't aware we had any problems maintaining peace with south korea.

When you give gifts to people, does it always have to be something political? Do you ever visit a friend's house bringing a bottle of wine and expect something in return? It's just a gift. Maybe the title of the design, "Peace", is what confused you.
