Last week, William announced the Microsoft Surface as Microsoft’s next foray into the tablet market. He then stated that the Surface would be his next computing purchase. However, over the weekend, the popular deals website Woot.com announced that the Surface was doomed and would eventually end up on it’s home page. Here’s a little excerpt of their prediction:
These Klipsch speakers’ front-mounted volume controls let us sing it from the rooftops: “The Surface is doomed for Woot! The Surface is doomed to Woot! Huzzay! Huzzah! The Surface is doomed for Woot!”
Sure, the subwoofer provides more than enough thumping bass for music, but it also lets us highlight the laughable game of catch-up that Microsoft seems perpetually trapped in. “People want phones?? Quick, do what Apple and Google did 5 years ago!” “Tablets? Uhhh, uhhhh, OK! Presentations with dudes in v-neck sweaters? You got it!”
Anybody with a finger on the pulse of ANYTHING could tell you that the Surface is doomed for failure. And you know where failed products inevitably land? RIGHT HERE, BABY. GIMME GIMME GIMME.
If you don’t know anything about Woot.com they are a website that has a different deal every 24 hours. A lot of times they are old items, or warehouse surpluses. For example, the HP TouchPad has been featured on it a few times after everyone else ran out of stock. Somehow, Woot got their hands on some refurbished models and sold them all out. So you never know what kind of items you will find on Woot. The item descriptions are always funny, and Woot even does funny video demonstrations for some of their products. The deal of the day was actually a set of Klipsch speakers, but the entire write up was ragging on the Surface. Hit the link to read the rest of the prediction.
