Quote:
Microsoft founder and chairman Bill Gates recently went on CNBC to talk about where the markets on a whole are heading. Eventually, he was asked about the declining PC market and the surging interest in tablets. What will the world look like in the future and how will the cloud factor in? The cloud is a gigantic opportunity, he said, that allows so many things you couldn't do before.

Ohhhh. TabLets. I was wondering why a table without a keyboard was frustrating :D

He probably complains about it being frustrating to hammer nails with a sponge.

I am actually with him on this one, I love my G2 android phone with it's physical keyboard, I don't like touch keyboards as they are buggy, don't work when your fingers are wet and not accurate like a physical keyboard. The surface has a physical keyboard and that's one of the main features that i like, bill gates has it right on this one but i wouldn't buy it unless I can root the fucker.

I used to feel the same, until I found out predictive, self-learning, auto-correcting keyboards. They're a marvel.
