Gates also hinted that Microsoft Bob, the cartoonish and widely-panned Windows assistant from 1995, might return, at least in spirit if not in name, as a competitor to Apple's Siri and Google's Google Now. But for all of Gates' future-looking remarks, he also echoed statements made just last week by the man who replaced him as Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer.
