For many years now, Bill Gates has top the world richest list but as of yesterday as reported by Techdirt and BBC, Bill Gates is no more the worlds richest man, he has been overthrown by Mogul Carlos Slim a Mexican's Telecom tycoon. Slim's fortune worth about $67.8bn (£33.6bn) and above, as against Bill Gates whose fortune comfortably remains at $59.2 billion. Slim is specifically into wireless telephones and this tells you that, the phone industry is about to dominate the world, as most people are fancy about getting a new feature rich mobile phones all the time.
This also shows that Microsoft's dominant days of the desktop are numbered and gradually counting down.
BTW, that is the photo of Mr Slim.
