Bill Gates apparently thinks that Wii is the future of computer hardware and software. But not in so many words.
Speaking with Apple CEO Steve Jobs at the D5 conference, the Microsoft founder described what he saw as the future of input devices for PCs and other electronic media: "And as we get natural input, that will cause a change. … Software is doing vision and so, you know, imagine a game machine where you’re just going to pick up the bat and swing it or the tennis racket and swing it."
To which the moderators replied, "We have one of those," and referred to Wii by name.
Gates, however, insisted that Nintendo's console was not what he was talking about, saying, "No, that’s not it. You can’t pick up your tennis racket. And swing it."
It's possible that those who've played Wii Tennis might think otherwise, however.
