Bill Gates

iPad Photo Ops ...

No Problem!!

7/28/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Microsoft founder Bill Gates came face-to-face with his worst nightmare -- the almighty iPad -- and he was totally cool with it!

TMZ obtained the video of every computer geek's fantasy going down down Thursday in London ... where Bill and his wife Melinda are attending the Olympics.

Bill had graciously agreed to pose for a photo with a group of tourists when someone did the unspeakable -- whipping out an iPad to take the shot!! Almost immediately, a woman screeches ...  "You can't use an iPad!!"

The Apple objector -- identified as Melinda by a witness -- quickly says, "I'm just kidding."

You gotta see Bill's reaction though ... super-cool at the site of the device that must haunt his, and every other Microsoft exec's dreams.

Zune ... anyone?

I don't buy or use Apple products (except Beatles albums...) because:

1. Apple products are 20 - 40% overpriced, depending on where you live and buy your stuff.

2. Apple dictates what software you can and can't use and patronises customers (closed system).

3. Apple tries to dictate what content you can or can't have on YOUR electronic device you bought from them with some laughable "moral standards" they define FOR YOU. Again, they patronise customers. Nobody tells me what kind of "offensive" lyrics can I listen to or not, or what kind of "obscene" pictures I can look at or not. The two people who had that right lost it when I turned 18 several decades ago.

4. That idiotic Steve Jobs cult makes Scamotologists looke like sane human beings. Well, almost...

5. Fcuk hipster bull$hit. And their "sheep" mentality.

Bill Gates and his wife have done so much to help people and children with their wealth plus Microsoft is always going to develope new and better operating systems and software. Do you think Bill really cares? Apple makes some great over priced devices so they aren't going to be hurting either. I have an iPad and love it but Microsoft still is the King!
