Microsoft downplays Google threat
Mr Gates points to IBM as his single biggest competitor
Bill Gates has played down the threat posed to Microsoft by competition from internet search giant Google.
Google's meteoric rise and rivalry with Microsoft has increasingly become a fixation of the press, Mr Gates said.
"People tend to get over focused on one of our competitors. We've always seen that," the Microsoft chairman said.
Speaking before a keynote speech at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, Mr Gates said computer giant IBM posed a greater threat to Microsoft.
"IBM has always been our biggest competitor. The press just don't like to write about IBM," he told the Reuters news agency.
