    What about the Windows Phones?


    Apple has been gaining traction in the federal government. The Defense Department in October said it plans to open its network for the first time to iPhones, as well as devices running Google Inc.’s Android operating system.

    CACI International Inc. has altered “thousands” of Apple Inc. iPads so they can be used securely by the U.S. government, according to Dan Allen, CACI’s chief executive officer.

    IPad adopters within the government include President Barack Obama, who has said he uses one to watch National Basketball Association games.

    Has anyone in the White House told the Pres about the Surface? Or don't they care? Bill et al, you're needed in Washington!

    Six actually. I was talking about Bill Gates, he still has an interest in Microsoft I believe.

    He's too busy giving his money to worthwhile causes to be worried about these trivial matters.

    Anyway, how can you neuter an iPad, it's just one notch above a photo frame, they should have used something with steel balls like the Surface Pro, but that will come. Once Obama finds out that watching videos is all it's good for he'll get the Pro.

    How do you know what Bill Gates considers trivial and where his interests and loyalties lie?

    Actually...

    Bill Gates was on Reddit today in an Ask me Anything session, where he talked about the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's work, programming, Windows 8, vista, and other things. Pretty interesting read through.

    I read that about 5 mins ago and he was very circumspect about the question on which was better, Windows 7 or 8. He simply said higher is better, not exactly a resounding endorsement. He also said he'd just received a Surface Pro (so late?), but didn't say much about it.

    I think we ALL know by now Bill Gates is pro-Windows 8.
