Last night over on US news channel CNN, they weren't just covering the presidential mid-term elections. It was also a showcase for the Surface Pro 3, conspicuously placing a kickstand-bound unit in front of its commentators. The catch? They were actually just being used as iPad stands.
As GeekWire points out, a few eagle-eyed viewers pointed out that behind every Surface Pro 3, there's an iPad running the show.
