I wonder how many backups they had strategically hidden behind stage.

If this actually bothers anyone who wants one of these (after the conference I do!) that is pretty weak.

Isn't such a thing not bothering you setting he bar pretty low? I mean, at lest in live presentations they should have Explorer load a page that would not crash it.

I hear that windows 8 beta has the nasty habit of freezeing often. Makes those who devleop apps for these things refere to MS products like in the "good ol days".

If the tablet would have burst into flames, sure let it bother you.  Its the same with other gaffs, like 360 Conference last year, or the (rather funny) Wonderbook not working at Sony's E3 this year, or how about Zelda from the Nintendo conference not working basically at all?  These things are minor and should not bother people, nor keep them from buying into these products. 

Now, if the MS tablet/PC/Surface/Thinggie was in production right now and did this?  Sure, but my Smartphone locks up from time to time and I do not see any reason to get another one.

That must have beed a megaton that I missed.



Imagine not having GamePass on your console...

Gotta feel sorry for the guy presenting. That's horrible.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

ahhh, Murphys law still going strong



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

That's unfortunate indeed.
If it was me i would have dropped it to the floor "accidentally" before reaching for the backup lol.


That would make it more comical for sure instead of just laughing at the product itself.  Poor MS.  They should already know by now that copies are never as good as the original.


M$ actually made the tablet pc first. I'm not kidding. Google it.

Rather worryingly, the Home/Windows button was not doing anything either, nor was the right side slidy bar so he coud gtfo of iexporer that way. The slate/tablet is rather nice, and I like the Metro interface on it, works really well. I think it will do fine, and that means only good news for the rest of us.

I've had the beta since it came out (both versions) and I haven't had a single problem with it.



Honestly, he dealt it super well and transitioned pretty smoothly...

And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,

Gotta love demoing with unfinished products.

Anyone in software development knows that pain. It just happens at some point and time.
