    Exclamation Bill Gates no longer planet's richest!!!

    Mexican magnate Slim passes Bill Gates as planet's richest
    Posted: 03 July 2007 2355 hrs

    MEXICO CITY: Mexican telecom tycoon Carlos Slim Helu has overtaken Microsoft founder Bill Gates as the richest person on the planet, according to the Mexican financial website Sentido Comun.

    Sentido Comun said the Mexican mogul's wealth had shot past Gates following the rocketing performance of his telecommunications firm, America Movil.

    US-based Forbes magazine, known for its rankings of the world's wealthiest individuals, had in April updated its list to show Slim as the second richest, moving past the legendary American investor Warren Buffett.

    The Mexican financial website said Slim has grown even wealthier due to a surge in the share prices of his company.

    "Thanks to a 26.5 percent rise in the shares of America Movil during the second quarter, Slim, who controls a 33 percent interest in Latin America's largest mobile phone company, is substantially richer than Gates," Sentido Comun said.

    "The difference between their two fortunes is around nine billion dollars in favour of Slim," the financial website said.

    Aside from America Movil, Carlos Slim, 67, controls the INBURSA financial group as well as retail and restaurant chains.

    I'm not that surprised he is not the planet's richest anymore. This day was bound to come. Too bad he makes a product that can be pirated. The other guy's product can no way be pirated. So that guy makes every cent. Bill Gates... yeahh... many many people get windows vista or xp or whatever, but Mr Gates is not getting a cent from them!

    Erm, you don't have to wait till then if you're a Canon user. We have the blue screen equivalent called "Err99"
