Bill Gates Is Watching You.......In Outlook 2010

Looks like Bill Gates is making an appearance in Microsoft's Outlook 2010.  A new feature in Outlook 2010 is the "people pane", this pane shows you recent emails from certain people along with some of their information and future appointments with that person.  "People Pane" also allows you to upload an image or connect this person with any of their social networks.

This is where it gets interesting.  If the contact doesn't have a picture it defaults to a outline of a "random persons" image.  Now this all seems pretty normal and usually one wouldn't look twice at the image, but the guys over at Ars Technica noticed something very familiar about the image........

I have heard in the past about the guys at Microsoft embedding games and codes into their products but thought that was a thing of the past.  See the pictures below to fully understand why I take my hat off to the people at Microsoft.

It's not just any old picture of Bill Gates that some funny Outlook developer used.  It's a picture from one of the Gate's finest moments. The picture was taken in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1977, when Gates was arrested for a driving offense.  The exact nature of which is lost in time.......It's the man's mug-shot.
