Microsoft has released yet another ad that takes a dig at iPad’s limited capabilities in certain areas like multitasking.

The ad shows two baseball scouts using an iPad and a Windows 8 tablet to see if a player is worth signing. The scout with the Windows 8 tablet is faster at getting the information as he is able to use two apps at the same time, compared to the iPad user who is shown struggling to find the information because of app switching.

The ad ends with a tag line “do two things at once without dropping the ball”. This is the fourth anti-iPad ad (1, 2 and 3) released by Microsoft so far as part of its Windows 8 tablet vs iPad campaign.
