    No wonder they were behind in all the numbers all night long.

    There was only one reporter that used the IPAD, the rest were using the Surface even with the pen.

    It seems that Apple is getting close to corning the market i.e.. iPad = tablet.

    Ha ha, I think that's rather funny, and just proves that Surface has something even ipad owners think is a good idea... the kick stand...

    You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. Especially if it's a stupid horse.

    Well, that's a good news, shows that the iPad does not have a stand!

    Far Left moonbats using iPads? Well I suppose they are idiot proof.

    Microsoft and its boneheaded Marketing team need to take a page from the Bose playbook: If you're going to pay a partner to get device prominence, then make it happen!

    You'd think that they learned something from the ongoing NFL fiasco but, clearly, they have not. Did Bose act like a pussycat when they saw players continuing to wear Beats headsets? MS needs to follow suit and make sure they get what they paid for.

    Give people a Swiss Knife, 90% will use it only to cut the bread, meat and won't need more than a simple kitchen knife, and the 10% left will really take advantage of a Swiss Knife into doing creative /productive things...
    Ipad are like good single knifes, doing well the job for reading , watching videos , idiot proof, ..these guys don't need more than this, their technical knowledge is limited to the on/off power button ... ;-)

    That's not true at all... they have someone to turn things on and off for them.
    Talking head: where's the "ON" button?
    Staff shows them...
    Talking head: where's the "OFF" button?
    Staff: its the same button
    Talking head: how's that work?
    Staff: never mind we'll take care of it, don't touch anything
    Talking head: Ok but just one more question... which one is the Power button, I need more power. :)
