I hate Microsoft Windows as much as the next person (OS X has spoiled me) but Windows 8 definitely shows true innovation over Apple's iPad. For example, if I'm watching passively watching a TV Show on my iPad and I get an iMessage, I have to exit the show and go to iMessage to respond. Then, when I'm done, go back to my show. But in Windows 8, you can have multiple apps open at once (see picture). You can a "mini" version of a secondary app. Therefore, I can watch a show and message someone without leaving my show (just as I can on my Mac). Or, I can have my Twitter feed going as I do something else. I love Apple as much as anyone else but it feels like their idea of single fullscreen Apps is dated. There is a reason why they perfected multitasking on OS X; I just found it odd when it's not brought to iOS. Granted, I don't know what this multitasking would do to battery life but I can't imagine battery life being better if I'm constantly switching between IMing someone and relaunching a TV Show. Anyone else feel like iOS needs some new innovations? I always left like Apple was the only company truly innovating; it's weird seeing a company like Microsoft actually making something better.
