[quote]"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!"

I highly doubt she has even seen one, let alone used one. Sounds like she's reading off a script.

She has one. She got one early on. She is always given tech items early on. She has an incredible ability to reach millions of people and when she endorses a product she actually stands behind it, has used it and actually likes it.

This will help the Surface gain more traction. When Oprah says she likes something many many many others follow. This is a big endorsement for Microsoft Surface RT. Oprah fans will buy without hesitation based on Oprah's comments.

OMG -- if Oprah has one, I must get one -- NOT. :rolleyes: At least some of us can think for ourselves.

That's exactly how I feel. Except for the "Wowser!" (and maybe even that), it's almost word-for-word what Microsoft uses as their talking points.

I guess you don't know how much money she has right now.

Seriously. We're talking about a billionaire here. She's not hurting for money.

The same can be said about a lot of stuff you say in the forums. Just because a celeb says they like something doesn't mean only the brainless will follow it. Then again look who I'm trying to discuss logic with.

Yes. They paid off [i]Oprah[/i]. That's right.

Can I have what you're on?

I don't think Oprah needs the money, but I don't think this is necessarily about her. Remember the article a while ago that her TV network has a Windows Store App? A lot of this is cross-promotion.

I'm not saying she wasn't impressed by Surface, but she was also impressed by vectorized illustrations of your pet on custom greeting cards , so...

Surprised she didn't try and eat it! Next thing you know, she will be holding it on the cover of her magazine.

Rule #1: There's no such thing as "enough money".

That's ridiculous logic. Just because she's a billionaire doesn't mean she's above taking more money for endorsements.
