Happy birthday, Bill. Love, Bono

Let us now pay homage to our benevolent overlord, Bill Gates, as he has birthday wishes passed on by none other than Bono and U2. Sure, Bono will sell himself to any tech company that comes a callin', but anything that gets the goat of Fake Steve Jobs is OK by us, too. In other news, Bono also does weddings and Bar Mitzvahs. And look for him to serenade Linus Torvalds on Dec. 28 and Jim Balsille on Feb. 3.

Oh, and Steve Ballmer was spotted dancing backstage.
