The CrazyGates 07 tour continues, this time in a Business Week article where, after commenting that he wouldn’t buy an iPhone…Why?
Because he likes to dial the numbers with one hand (of course), Bill Gates said the following:
So the key trend to look at is the importance of software and then say who really has shown the ability to do strong software? In some ways, just we have. If you define it more broadly, yes, Apple has done a few things well. Google has done a few things well. But the leaps in software and the kind of long-term investments we’re making make it clearer than ever that we picked the right business, and the right place to contribute.
Windows Mobile software is horrible. It takes way too many clicks to get anything accomplished. Almost any mobile OS you can name is faster and better than Windows Mobile…
I’m beginning to think this is just some sort of “if we say it enough it will be true” kind of campaign.
Let me also state that I really, REALLY, respect Bill Gates for his philanthropy – but these interviews are getting ridiculous.
