Mobile application security vulnerability report

Bill Gates is so busy promoting his new book he hasn't got time to be photographed and measured for his very own waxwork by sculptors at Madame Tussaud's. Due to be included in Madame Tee's New York exhibition when it opens next year, the artist chosen to recreate Gates has to work from two-dimensional photographs instead. "We're always prepared to wait for a sitting," said a spokeswoman at Madame Tee's in London where the wax mannequin is beginning to take shape. "He's a very busy man, but his office has been very helpful and co-operative," she said. As always, Madame Tee's hopes to get some cast-offs from Gates to clothe the dummy. But it's still unclear whether he'll pick one of his sober suits or opt for his more geeky garb. Either way, Gates will be in good company. Artists are already busy modelling uber-business icons Donald Trump and Ted Turner in time for the opening of the new Madame Tee's in New York next year. ®
