Microsoft Surface crashes during demo


Microsoft faces another setback as a video of its entry to the tablet world, Microsoft Surface, goes viral, and not in a good way.

Microsoft President Steve Sinofsky was demonstrating the company’s browser, IE 10 on the Surface when the device he was holding appeared non-responsive forcing him to reach out for a new unit before continuing with his demo.

The same thing happened to Microsoft 15 years ago when it unveiled to the world Windows 98.

Thankfully, the demo follow Microsoft’s announcement that the device is still in its beta stage and as such, hardware or software issues abound.

Unfortunately, technology today is unforgiving and Microsoft’s blunder is likely to cost diminished anticipation to their new tablet.
