PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft had its annual financial analyst meeting on Thursday, and Steve Ballmer answered questions about what the company's answer to the iPad was going to be, and whether Windows Phone 7 was going to be a part of that product strategy. He said, "We're coming . . . We're coming full guns. The operating system is called Windows." Ballmer and Microsoft so don't get it. I can't believe Steve Ballmer is making me feel sorry for Microsoft.

Imagine the process you would use to do that using a touchpad, and then imagine doing it wearing oven mitts.

In 3 years, Apple hasn't managed to implement basic text manipulation on par with even a first-gen Palm Pilot from 1997. If that doesn't demonstrate a commitment to form over function, then nothing does.

"It is also likely that they have have further surprises awaiting us.

That, or iPad 2.0 will feature "wings" and "extra absorbency".
