The birth of the iPad from Microsoft's perspective

“The announcement 10 years ago of the iPad iPad was clearly a milestone in computing. For me it was both a challenge and something magical. ”

"Microsoft had been working for more than 10 years starting with WinPad."

"The success of the iPhone took Microsoft to where Apple was heading."

“The press was obsessed with Apple responding to Netbooks. More than 40 million were sold. ”

"Steve Jobs said a new computer needed to be better at some things, better than an iPhone or iPod and better than a laptop."

"Steve Jobs said the problem is … that Netbooks are not better at anything … They are slow. They have poor quality screens … They are cheap laptops. ”

“I thought it was a good thing. I mean that the non-expensive was a better word. ”

“He showed the extraordinary things his new device could do. The most impressive thing is that I got up to 10 hours of battery life. ”

“There was no stylus… nor pencil. How could it be PRODUCTIVE? The brains of a PC were very much in need of a keyboard, mouse and an alternative to pencil that the idea of ​​being productive without them was hard to believe. Also the instantaneous ignition, without virus, rotabilidad, maintenance of the quality during the time… ”

"Schiller showed rewritten versions of Apple's iWork applications for iPad."
