Bill Gates Joins the iPad's Army of Critics, Steve Jobs Couldn't Care Less

Bill Gates has given his opinion in Apple's iPad, saying that he still thinks that a netbook offers better functionality.

Speaking to BNet, he said: "You know, I'm a big believer in touch and digital reading, but I still think that some mixture of voice, the pen and a real keyboard - in other words a netbook - will be the mainstream on that.

"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 it.'"

Ipad can not beat the netbook without flash support or multi tasking .

The ipad is missing essential features . Even the Hp slate is looking better now .
