Microsoft’s Surface Pro has been slammed, literally, already plagued with display problems a leading US NFL coach was so frustrated with the Microsoft tablet device that he slammed it into the ground at a game being watched by millions.
The putdown by leading New England Patriots’ Bill Belichick who also happens to be the most accomplished head coach in the US game is not the first time that the device has failed to impress, the internet is riddled with consumers complaining about their Microsoft purchase.
A few years ago, the National Football League inked a deal with Microsoft to provide Surface Pro tablets to act as digital playbooks.
However, they haven’t always performed as advertised and US football don’t like using them.
Bill Belichick hates the Surface Pro so badly that he simply gave up in frustration and slammed the device into the ground not once but several times.
Belichick said he was finished with the Surface Pro and has gone back to the old fashioned method of using paper.
“As you probably noticed I’m done with the tablets,” he said in a five-minute rant about unreliable tech.
“They’re just too undependable for me. I’m going to stick with pictures, which several of our other coaches do as well, because there just isn’t enough consistency in the performance of the tablets.”
“I just can’t take it anymore.”
Given Microsoft handed over massive bundle of cash to the NFL for the visibility of being an official partner, Belichick’s comments are sure to cause embarrassment.
Could there be more of a putdown for Microsoft either? Someone would rather use paper print outs than have to use a Microsoft product.
