Snippet: iPad-Like Devices ☇

Shared on September 9, 2014

I wasn’t going to originally link to this, but it happened again on last night’s Chargers/Cardinals game—Vlad Savov for The Verge:

In among the larger-than-life humans on NFL sidelines this season, you’ll notice a slew of Microsoft’s Surface Pro 2 tablets helping out. Used by players and coaches to review photos of plays, the tablets are encased in chunky cyan protective cases and have been attracting the attention of the broadcast commentators when put to use. The only problem is that the announcers don’t seem to have been briefed on the name, leaving them to describe Microsoft’s slates as “iPad-like tools.”

Although yesterday’s news cycle was dominated by other NFL news (and I don’t want to take away from that), it is good to laugh at something just a bit sillier.
