Yesterday was Midterm Election Day for the US. While not nearly as big as the Presidential elections, it is still a pretty big deal for us. In an effort to generate some free publicity, Microsoft provided CNN newscasters reporting on the election a number of Surface Pro tablets. This made Windows fans very happy, as they were reportedly sending enthusiastic tweets across the Twitterverse. Sentiments like, “Watching CNN because they are using Surfaces. FOX using Macs” found their way into social media. As if the tablet a person uses determines whether news is reported properly or not.
