Microsoft erects a giant Surface tablet in the center of London

Microsoft has a fascination with big screens. The software giant has demonstrated Windows 8 on its 82-inch Perceptive Pixel PC and created giant displays with Kinect built in. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates even uses a giant 80-inch Windows 8 display occasionally. Today, however, Microsoft is going one step further. At one of London’s biggest tourist attractions, Trafalgar Square, the company has created a 383-inch Surface tablet.

Seems like a better use for the time and money would be a little market research.............

Hi there
Since in London the Metro /Subway/Tube never seems to work properly at the weekends I suppose it gives people something to look at instead of trains that don't appear.

(Mind you there are some decent pubs in that area of London - Ms would have spent the money better by having a small commercial in some of these pubs while offering customers free food and drink !!!).

Cheers
