Caption Contest: Standing behind (...or in front of?) Surface, it's Microsoft's Panos Panay [Update: WINNER!]

The Neowin Caption Contest is a fun, fortnightly feature in which our readers show off their comedic talents, for the chance to win a Neowin subscription, and other great prizes.

It's that time again... Twice a month, we pluck a photo from recent news events, or from our archives, presenting it to you to have a bit of fun with it. The best captions - whether upvoted by our readers, or selected by us - win a prize, and the eternal admiration and respect of their peers. (Or at least a few laughs.)

Our warmest congratulations to warwagon, the winner of our last Caption Contest, featuring Microsoft exec Joe Belfiore! There were lots of other great entries there, so make sure you check them out!

Now, we have a new picture awaiting your quality captions...

The picture

In recent days, Microsoft lost its coveted 'recommended' status from Consumer Reports for its Surface range, due to concerns over product reliability. Of course, it quickly disputed those findings, and Panos Panay, corporate VP for Microsoft Devices, made it clear that the company 'stands behind Surface'.

That makes Panos the perfect subject for our latest caption contest. But what's on his mind in the pic above? What's he saying? What's he thinking? Share your caption, and you never know... you might win!

The contest

Add your caption in the comments below. Just before the next contest, we'll select one lucky person to win a 12-month Tier 2 Neowin subscription, giving you ad-free browsing of the site for a full year, along with a bunch of other features! It's as simple as that!

Neowin subscriptions offer access to restricted forum content, early access to new site features, and site-wide ad removal. They also help to support Neowin, enabling us to bring you more of the high-quality content you crave, and more of the groovy giveaways you desire! If you don't win the contest, you can support Neowin by purchasing a subscription for as little as $14 a year - find out more here!

You'll need to be registered on Neowin to submit your entry for the Caption Contest, but it's free, quick and easy to sign up, and it'll only take a few moments. The winner of the last contest won't be eligible to win this one. Finally, remember that this competition is intended first and foremost to be fun and good-spirited, so please make sure you keep your caption suggestions clean, profanity-free, and respectful... and above all, funny! ;-)

Good luck!

We have a winner!

Congratulations to warwagon for winning this contest!
