Yikes! Microsoft partnered with CNN intending on promoting the Surface Pro 3 and even supplied the company with the tablets for commentators to use on air. Unfortunately, it didn’t go too well. During a live election coverage, viewers began to notice CNN’s commentators all had the Surface Pro 3, however, they were not being used how Microsoft had intended CNN to use them.
Viewers took to Twitter as pictures began to surface (pun intended) online exposing that some of the commentators were using iPads instead of the Surface Pro 3 and beyond that, some were using the Surface Pro 3 as a stand for their iPad. Ouch!
Sorry Microsoft! We’re not sure why some of the CNN commentators didn’t use your Surface Pro 3 and instead used it to prop up their iPads. Maybe because everyone hates Windows 8! (Okay maybe not everyone, maybe just me.) Either way this incident has us facepalming.
