No iPods and iPhones in Gates Household

"There are very few things that are on the banned list in our household," Melinda Gates tells Vogue, "But iPods and iPhones are two things we don't get for our kids."

Melinda's spouse, Bill, of course (and everyone knows), founded Microsoft which also has its own line of media players -- The Zune. So I guess, when it comes to products of the Cupertino-based competition, it's 'Look but Don't Touch' for the Gates household.

Melinda is quick to follow up though, "Every now and then I look at my friends and say, 'Ooh, I wouldn't mind having that iPhone,'"

There you go. :)
