Bronstein at Large : Bill Gates on Journalism and Social Media (and the iPad, too)

A very nice article. Well worth the read. And here is the ipad bit right from the mouth of Bill Gates:
Quote:
You once said Steve Jobs could see the next big thing. Do you like the iPad?

It's okay. The scenarios aren't that clear. But it's good looking. [Steve Jobs] does good design, and [the iPad] is absolutely a good example of that
I'm sure this would make Steve Ballmer squirm in his sleep .

I'm thinking he already has, and on a few occasions.

This is weird, consider Bill Gates openly attacked the iPad earlier by saying "It's not like I sit there and feel the same way I did with iPhone, where I say, 'Oh my God, Microsoft didn't aim high enough.' It's a nice reader, but there's nothing on the iPad I look at and say, 'Oh, I wish Microsoft had done it.'"

Perhaps his opinion changed when he saw the iPad's sales.

Have you ever heard of surface computing? First unveiled by Microsoft in 2007?

Take a look at this: YouTube Video Link

To be serious the surface computer blows away anything that Apple has.
