Making a Better iPad

Microsoft has a bit of a split personality. Some product groups listen carefully to customers and either design or adapt product to user requests. Others groups create their wares in a bit of a vacuum where only the developers and product managers have any say.

Apple is of the latter school, at least when it comes to IT input. In that regard, the things you told me you want to see in future iPads is purely unsolicited.

Here's what you had to say:

  • One Redmond Report reader wants to see Safari a bit more like Firefox and IE with tabbed browsing.
  • Unlike Windows PCs, iPads can't be managed by Active Directory. That would seem to be an easy fix if Apple wanted to make it, and I'm sure Microsoft wouldn't mind (Redmond wants AD to control everything).
  • The biggest request was for Microsoft to port a big chunk of its portfolio, especially Office, to the iPad.

Do you use an iPad? If so, what are your biggest product request? Wish lists welcome at [email protected]
