The San Fransisco Chronicle interviewed Bill Gates recently on journalism and social media. But it’s the final question that got our attention: “You once said Steve Jobs could see the next big thing. Do you like the iPad?”

His response: “It’s okay. The scenarios aren’t that clear. But it’s good looking. [Steve Jobs] does good design, and [the iPad] is absolutely a good example of that.”

Whatever happened to the Microsoft Courier concept? That was pretty good looking for a Microsoft device. If it’s ever launched, it could give the iPad a run for its money.
