Tour Bill Gates' Futuristic Pad, Only $35,000ish


Who doesn't want to catch a glimpse of the most wired home in the world?

One lucky (and rich) Microsoft employee will get the chance: Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates is auctioning off a private tour of his home, with him as the guide. The auction kicks off a charity fundraiser at Microsoft and bidding is up to $35,000. Steep, yes, but what better way to get face-time with the big boss! And hell, with five acres and more than 66,000 square feet, that tour's gonna take a while. Some savvy Microsoft employee could have a raise by the time the tour's over and recoup those 35 bills, easy.

So what will they get to see?
