April Fool's Special Later this year, Microsoft will release a new version of its MSN messaging software. This new edition will be labelled MSN Platinum and use graphic elements from the Platinum album cover. Here is the new MSN logo (the final version could be slightly different). Bill Gates himself presented the project to a few journalists and analysts and said: "I'm a big fan, and I just love how Mike has learnt from the software industry, releasing an update to his product - Tubular Bells - every few years. Tubular Bells 2003 - a musical bug fix..." (Credits: Hans & Richard)

The irony is it wouldn't suprise me in the slightest if Bill Gates was a fan.

I wonder if this will impact Mike's plans to release the Star Trek themed "Latinum" sequel later this year?

I like the logo. Very nicely done, but it didn't fool me for one second, unlike Brandon ( :(  :/ ).

Let's see you try something then.

Great one :). I look forward to these every year. The Casio TB guitar thing was the best especially with that cool tune that came with it!...hmm any chance that's still online?

I put an April 1st spoof on the mvr forum yesterday which fooled a few people. There's a copy of it HERE at oldfield.info. (But it may not mean much to non-mvr folk.)

As I'm not British (of course), who's the guy in this video?

BTW, I find it very funny. :D

Same here. I thought it was hilarious, but did not recognize the man, the song, the setting, or the context.

Hi, I don't know the Guy, the setting and so on.
But I like this Video very much. Humor like Don Alfonso!
