    Just watched most of the NFL pre-game show on Fox. A Surface Pro 3, prettied up with an NFL skin, was prominently on display as Howie, Michael, Jimmy and the gang discussed upcoming matches...by flipping through the paper spread over their broadcast desk. Not one of them touched or looked at the Surface during the entire broadcast (that I saw).

    What's up with that?? If you were sitting at the broadcast desk, how would YOU make use of the Surface?

    I'd cast the screen to the teleprompter so I look like I just know stuff rather than reading from copy :)

    i live in the uk so dont know much about nfl

    but am sure they were supposed to be trying to use surfaces to show the teams plays etc

    maybe its just more advertising for the surface

    They DO use them a lot. It's probably because they just didn't have "copy" on them. When they demonstrate plays or other things, they do use them.

    Probably just caught a segment where they didn't.

    Those are pretty looking though.

    Watch carefully. That is all they use on the field. They're in really sturdy cases.

    I've seen them quite a bit in use on the field, just missed the use in studio. They DO look really sharp!

    The cases that they have them in looks like Incipio feather cases.

    Right, I think the ones used on the filed by the coaches and players are SP2s and the announcers are using the SP3s,
