    I am not thinking the pats are going to get much sympathy for their equipment failures :jj: I like how they were referring to them as Microsoft surface, then Microsoft tablets, then just tablets like someone from Microsoft was like hey we wanted the product placement references only when they are working dude!

    Bet Microsoft was wishing people still thought they were ipads during this debacle.

    its like the second championship that MS supplied Surface tablets for the product placement, and they were so unreliable and difficult to use that once the cameras moved off, everyone went to their bags and dug out their ipads in order to actually be able to work.

    Buncha cheating pricks anyway. Karma, muther fucker. :jj:

    Anyhow, they just use the tablets for photos and annotations. They still had the ability to use the hard wired tablets in the backup. Otherwise they could just use old school photos.

    my experience over the past 30 years of working in the industry and (unfortunately) having to develop for the platform: if you willingly depend upon Windows working when your future depends upon it, you have no future.

    Sure. Just can't get any fortune 100 company to standardize on a LINUX desktop.

    A guy I worked with was so proud of his surface. He was showing it off to everyone. He dropped it about the third day he owned it. I've never seen a screen shatter into so many pieces.
