I found this Microsoft Surface fail via my Twitter feed, and I’m glad @dziczkzw posted it. The clip features a pretty embarrassing tech demo from the Surface presser that took place on Monday, where the tablet will not do what the presenter is commanding it to do. I felt bad for the guy, because I’m sure he felt like an as*hole, but at the same time the fail doesn’t surprise me either. Not to be too much of a fanboy, but has any Microsoft product ever functioned perfectly from the get go? Let alone in their development phases? I sure can’t think of any.
Microsoft is on the right track with the Surface by making it a closed system, and holding a trendy press conference to introduce it, but this video showcases that the OS giant is still a few years away from perfecting the Apple dog and pony show routine. You can watch a dude experiencing one of the worst moments of his career at MS below. You’ve been wondering if an Apple tech demo has ever failed so miserably…
