The Seattle Times: Microsoft: Microsoft's adCenter is Google, Yahoo! rival: "One of the toughest questions for Gates to answer was about feeling angry.
'What pisses you off?' Deutsch asked Gates. 'I know with $50 billion it's hard to be pissed off, but what does piss you off?'
Gates started to talk about things he gets concerned about, but when pressed for a stronger answer, he paused for several seconds and eventually said: 'Not much.'
And as in many interviews Gates does these days, the conversation eventually turned to Google. Gates said that the company has done a great job on search and advertising, and that the rivalry is a rare case where Microsoft is actually being underestimated.
'We will keep them honest in the sense of being able to do better on those things, bring a new angle to it,' he said. 'The intense competition in this business is what makes it fun.'"
