Surprise! Bill Gates Isn’t a Fan of the iPad, Prefers Netbooks

Is it really surprising that Bill Gates isn’t a fan of the iPad?

“So, 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 …

Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2010

Today in Techland: Peter brought us all the specs of Google’s Buzz – a new system that attempts to be Twitter/Facebook/Flickr/YouTube/Wave/GChat all in one.

The Techland Show: Wii Suck Edition

As Peter and Lev were both out this week, Steve and I took over The Techland Show. (Muhahaha.)
