Oprah Tweets Praise for Microsoft’s Surface Tablet on Her Ipad. (Also see 2012’s Favorite Things)

Sunday night Oprah brought back the show about her favorite things.  You know the one where she gushes over things that she loves right before giving them all away to everyone in the audience.  This year was a little different because instead of the normal studio audience, she treated a select group of army wives.

In the midst of yelling, chanting and screaming  Oprah gave props to the newest Microsoft Tablet called the surface.   Quick to share anything and everything with the world, Oprah took to twitter,

“Tweet, Tweet, Tweet” in my Oprah voice.  (I hate when she says that).

She bragged about already buying 8 of the Surface tablets.

If you look closely at the message, it says the message was posted “via Twitter for iPad”.  Oops!

That’s like telling me how good McDonald’s is while you are eating a Whopper.

Although Microsoft admits they don’t have an official Twitter App  yet for the Surface, there is nothing stopping Oprah from going to twitter.com and typing in her tweet the old school way.  This just proves that no matter how good she thinks the Microsoft Surface is, she is still using her Ipad.


Microsoft has had a tough time trying to gain ground on the Apple’s  Ipad.  The Surface is priced the same as the lowest model Ipad but negative press mixed with the resignation of Steven Sinofsky has made Microsoft’s job that much [more…]harder.  (Who is Steven Sinofsky?  Just the head of Microsoft’s Windows division, who decided to resign smack dab in the middle of the Windows 8 release! )

Maybe Oprah can by a few 1000 surface tablets to make up for her blunder.  With a net worth of $2.7 Billion that would be literally a drop in the bucket.
