Microsoft has finally entered the Tablet wars and unveiled its first tablet computer, the Surface, as the technology titan steps in with its own hardware to take on Apple’s market-ruling iPads.
In what was supposed to be a very important presentation to break into the lucrative tablet market Steven Sinofsky, president of Windows and Windows Live Division, stumbled and fumbled though the presentation for the Microsoft tablet surface when the tablet refused to function suddenly in between the presentation. Steven panicked and apologised and ran to get another replacement that worked.
Perhaps the Trainings execs at Microsoft could possibly give a few pointers next time to Steven how to handle a situation like this more gracefully or avoid any erors in a important presentation.
