Bill Gates on Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, and Microsoft Surface

People continue to be fascinated by Bill Gates for some reason, but I’ve always found the Microsoft co-founder to be a bit dry. In this short video, Gates discusses Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, and Microsoft Surface. But he sticks to the script.

Put simply, there’s just not much going on here. He does refer to Windows Phone 8, incorrectly, as Windows 8 Phone, which is amusing. And he hints at coming “camera” interfaces for Windows 8, which I take to mean Kinect. But it’s not clear that his insights here are any more or less relevant than anyone else’s. And as noted, he’s clearly on message, which isn’t really what anyone other than Microsoft PR wants.
