Microsoft just can’t catch a break. The company has a deal with CNN for desktop product placement where the sponsor’s Surface Pro tablets are neatly lined up in front of CNN’s anchors. James Kosur tells what happened.
CNN anchors were using the Microsoft Surface Pro during election night, but their use of the gadget was somewhat silly. Anchors used the tablets and their clever kickstand feature to hold their Apple iPads in place.
You heard that right, CNN anchors used the Surface Pro as a kickstand for their Apple tablets.
There’s a reason people are not using Surface Pro. It’s an expensive tablet and an expensive notebook, and not all that good at being either one. Microsoft has to pay people to use it, and even then they prefer to use something else.
