Microsoft Surface Tablet is One of Oprah's Favorite Things
Surface was just announced as part of Oprah's Favorite Things 2012 list. Quite apparently, Oprah was impressed with the company's debut tablet. In her own words:
"The Surface, Microsoft's first tablet, feels like a Mercedes-Benz to me, people! The full-size keyboard built right into the cover makes work easy, the very smart kickstand makes watching a movie or skyping a friend a delight, the less than a pound-and-a-half weight makes a great alternative to a laptop, and the many other features make it fun for work and play. Now, that's a wowser!"
You may agree with her review or not, and it may be irrelevant anyway. Especially the Oprah year-end-list, which also features $68 gourmet pigs in blankets, a $425 jewelry box, a $5,000 Bose 46-inch TV, or the Jetson E-Bike for $1,440, is a welcome promotion, even if it is now mainly pushed through Oprah's O magazine and its website. And yes, there is a free giveaway, but you will have to participate in a prize drawing and not just sit in the audience of some event.
