Bill Gates talked with CNN’s Larry King yesterday evening, Bianca Bosker reports for The Huffington Post.
On Apple’s iPad:
“We’re all trying to get to something that you just love to take to a meeting and use and it [the iPad] is not quite there yet. You need to have input. You need to take notes and edit things. Microsoft and a bunch of other companies are working on getting that final, ultimate product. […] It [the iPad] still isn’t the device that I’d take to a meeting because it has no input. What he’s looking for: A device “where I can use the pen, where I can use voice. There are solutions in the labs that are starting to look very good.”

MacDailyNews Take: This article purposely posted via iPad, a device whose input options include, among other things, voice, pen, software keyboard, hardware keyboards, fingers, and sausages. He probably wants a built-in floppy drive. Listen, Bill, sorry, but this time there’s no poorly-written contract signed by an unprepared sugared water salesbozo for you to misuse as your own personal ATM card, you derivative hack.”
If, in just the last 60 days, Apple’s iPad hasn’t already outsold the combined total of all of the tablets to which Gates and Co. have contributed to over the course of the last decade, it soon will.
