"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!"—Oprah

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.

You're clearly not in the target demographic...

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.

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 Oprah. That's right.

Can I have what you're on?
