Five Ways Microsoft’s Surface Is Better Than iPad

ZNet’s David Gewirtz shines the spotlight on features in both Microsoft Surface tablet PC models that make them better, more innovative, and potentially more game-changing than their counterparts on the iPad.

Way #1: Active tiles

Definitely more appealing than the iPad’s ancient Launcher interface

Way #2: Named Sets Of Applications In The Launcher

Way #3: Ability to run apps side-by-side

Way #4: Real Microsoft Office

Not a biggie for your editor, but some folks gotta’ have Word.

Way #5: Actual USB
