Bill Gates Disses iPad

Posted in iPad, News by ipadnerd on February 11, 2010

“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.’”, said Gates.  To which the iPadNerd says, “Bill you sound jealous! Wait till iPad Apps, Games, Apple on-demand streaming TV and Movie service, and iPad 2.0 with front facing camera hit the streets…then we’ll talk again.” Experience shows that Apple products are as much about evolution as revolution.
