    The excruciating moment Microsoft's Surface tablet crashes on stage - in repeat of Bill Gates' Windows 98 'blue screen of death' moment

    Ouch.
    The dangers of a live audience.

    They say 'never work with children or animals, or Microsoft technologies'.

    Funny thing is, if this had happened to Steve Jobs while revealing the new iPhone, it would have been considered loveable, unique, charming, charismatic, 'keeping it real' etc etc - but as it's MS, it's because it's evil and unreliable.

    But actually, more than anything else, my thoughts are a big hats-off to the guy who said 'better make sure there is a spare back there in case this one is borked'. I wonder how many spares they actually had?

    Yeah, I'd have preferred the guy had been more honest about it...

    Guess you'll have to buy 10 Surfaces and a mobile storage cabinet just in case then :blink

    It bound to happen, afterall it's technology. However the guy doesn't have the crisma that Bill demonstrated when Win 98 crashed, I mean even Bill Gates laughed and acknowledged that/when it happened.
