BREAKING: Daily Mail readers get confused by simple concept.


I follow news stories for the Surface and occasionally I get to read some news on the Surface Hub, an enterprise level piece of tech not really made for the masses. I must say I had a good laugh reading some of the comments on the Daily Mail article outlining the concept.

Of course the clickbaiting trend of todays journalism meant they ran this headline:

Microsoft’s giant 84inch touchscreen TV to go on sale in September - and will set you back $20,000

To be fair if you didn't read on I can understand some of the comments but these were a few of my favourites:

I think I'll stick to using the remote control from the sofa... I stopped getting up to change channels in the 80's! :)

Oh man, for $20,000, I could get 10 60" sets and watch 10 games at the same time. I don't think my wife would go for that even if we could afford it though :)

That's wayyyy to pricey for A TV!!!! Ultimately it does the same thing as the rest and it's 24 inches bigger than a 60 inch... What's with the price.

And of course the vintage:

Windows has too many viruses. That's why I went Mac and never went back.

Anyway it made me giggle.
the only one that resinates with me is

"Windows has too many viruses. That's why I went Mac and never went back."

viruses suck. OSX is targeted too but nowhere near the same amount as windows.
