Various conspiracy theories involving Gates and Covid-19 vaccines have baffled many people in recent times – including Gates himself.
Gates said he can’t understand why some theorists think he wants to inject people with microchips during an interview with Twitter earlier this year.
“[I] have been subject to a lot of misinformation,” the multibillionaire said. “I didn’t expect that. Some of it, like me putting chips in arms, doesn’t make sense to me – why would I want to do that?”
Meanwhile, it’s the end of an era, as Microsoft announced the news that Internet Explorer is shutting down after nearly 27 years.
Microsoft confirmed Internet Explorer would longer be supported on their platform.
