Considering it's Jay Cutler making the mistake, I'm not all that surprised. Nor am I surprised that broadcasters aren't catching it since half the time they can't get the action on the field correct either.
Is there not a penalty for this? Not only is he not advertising the Surface.... He's helping their competitor.
Head trauma leads to ipad.
I thought it was Surface Pro 3s that MS supplied to the NFL? Why would they give the old version?
Either way, stick to what you know, Culter. It ain't tech.
iPads are bad and he should feel bad.
You would penalize a PLAYER for this? It's Microsoft's uphill battle. I doubt they had every player in the NFL sign a contract. You ever call a tissue a kleenex? It's the same thing. You can't penalize consumers because your brand is so weak it's that it's instinctively replaced by your competition.
Nope, they're last generation tablets. Why? My guess is because Microsoft had a stockpile of inventory.
