Microsoft's Surface Actually Makes For a Pretty Decent Skateboard

By Sam Gibbs on at

What happened to Microsoft? When did it get so damn cool? Not only has it just busted out some pretty decent tablets, but its execs seem to know how to have fun too. Steven Sinofsky, head of the Windows unit, decided to mount some skate trucks on the back of a Surface tablet and ride that thing around Microsoft's campus.

Of course, it's just a PR stunt to show how hardy the Microsoft Surface is, but there are a lot more dull ways to do that. And yes, Sinofsky did the standard, "oh look, I can drop it and it still works" too, but skating around on a £400 tablet -- well, you wouldn't catch Apple doing that, would you?
