Erm. You know Oprah totally loves her Windows 8 “SURFACE!” She loves it so much, she bought 12 as Christmas gifts! She loves it so much, she tweet her love for it from a Surface. Oh wait, no she didn’t. She tweeted about it from her iPad.
It’s possible that Oprah actually loves her iPad more, but, she’s part of Windows’ huge marketing effort. As noted by TechCrunch:
“The Surface is on Oprah Winfrey’s list of 48 favorite things, with other gadgets such as Beats by Dre Powerbeats. As always, lists like this need to be taken with a grain of salt. Microsoft has spent $1.5 billion on Windows 8 promotion. Jessica Alba, Oprah, Gwen Stefani and others have endorsed Windows 8 and/or Windows Phone 8.”
Sure, twitter hasn’t released an official app for Windows 8 yet – at least not for RT. But, there are third party alternatives which would work. You know, if she loved her Surface as much as she says she does. Still, there’s a twitter site called twitter.com, that’s easy enough to use from any mobile device regardless of OS. Looks like Ms. Winfrey messed up on this one. No excuse not to do her paid promotion using the device she’s been told she has to “love so much”.
