Posted Jan 23, 2014

Jimmy Fallon interviewed Bill Gates on his show. Fallon said that it was “cool” that Gates used his wealth to eradicate polio. However, Fallon started to talk about computing with Gates. Gates said that computers would be able “to see, to listen, to talk, to recognize handwriting.” As Gates was talking, Fallon noticed that he had his MacBook open.

Fallon said “this is very disrespectful” upon realizing his mistake. So he closed the MacBook and removed it. Here is a video of it:

Gates also went on Fallon to promote his GatesLetter.com report about the benefits of foreign aid. To help people remember the website, Gates created a viral video on the show.
