Try as they might, Microsoft's effort to get its Surface tablets out and in front of as many people as possible keeps backfiring in hilarious ways. Most recently, a CNN anchor during Tuesday night's election coverage was spotted using his Microsoft Surface tablet as a shield and kickstand for his tablet of choice -- an iPad. Now normally that may not be a big deal, save for the fact that Microsoft supplied the Surface tablets to CNN as part of an election night partnership. As alluded to earlier, this isn't the first time paid airtime for the Microsoft Surface has backfired. You might remember that NFL announcers earlier this season accidentally called Microsoft Surface tablets "iPads" a few times. Clearly, $400 million in promotional advertising just doesn't buy what it used to.
