Bill Gates has Confidence in PC
“Users are frustrated by the limitations of IPad.” said Bill Gates. And I couldn’t agree more. I got an iPad 2 two years ago, used it for 3 months, and gave it to my little cousin as birthday gift. It was so useless: you can’t open documents, edit files, or do any things that Office can do. I am now thinking about getting a new device, but iPad or any other Android tablets are never my options.
Bill Gates was right. The iPad or tablets are novel, fun, but haven’t satisfied customer needs, not to mention substitued the PCs. The convertible PC is totally a game changer. It has benefits of both tablets and PCs, and the price is reasonable for most of them. Convertible PCs use Microsoft surface, which is also predicted by Bill Gates that will be in large need by customers.
For me, I am never a big fan of Apple. However, I do hope Apple could think more about what a customer want for an iPad and how to increase its value of functionality.
