iPad vs. Surface – Too Late for Microsoft? [POLL]
On last night’s “Late Show”, I mused about finally, FINALLY breaking down and buying an iPhone.
Saying things like, “I need it for work”; “it has a lot of bells and whistles that will come in handy” bah beep bah bop!
I also commented on a report , stating that Microsoft has introduced a product to go up against the iPad, although the iPad has been out now for some 2 years now.
I hate my iPhone and should have stayed with my flip phone. Other than to seem cool and get with the times, I rationalized that it was a piece of equipment I needed.
On the other hand, my Mac Book is indispensable. Everything I need for work is on it. Movie projects, audio editing, browsing the web, it’s all there.
An iPad, for me, would be a waste of money, much the same way I feel about Surface. (Note: I almost said “the” Surface, which would have made me sound like my mother-in-law, although she’d think of surface as a tile floor!) No, it’s just another gadget that will collect dust.
So, I’m a bit surprised that Microsoft has waited 2 years to enter the burgeoning tablet market. Better late than never? Perhaps….
I think it seems akin to ordering the filet mignon first, then migrating back to hamburger.
After having had the iPad around for the last couple of years, would you switch and go back to a Microsoft product like Surface?
