    The Surface Go 3, which Microsoft unveiled in late September, is an exceedingly well-built tablet, with a lovely screen and strong kickstand. For a device that starts at $400, it feels great.

    Microsoft has been mulling over the value of a dual-screen computer for at least a decade, and now it finally built one. Microsoft hardware chief Panos Panay pulled back the curtain on the new Surface Neo at a press conference in New York, and it essentially looks like -- what else? -- a foldable Surface.

    We're live at Microsoft's Surface event!

    We're kicking off another October full of anticipated gadget launches with Microsoft's Surface event, which is happening at 10AM ET today. Because no company is immune to the leak plague, we already know a lot about what to expect from Microsoft, including a new Surface Pro, an ARM-based Surface and an updated Surface Laptop. But that can't be all, right? We're hoping to see a dual-screen Surface, even if it's just a prototype. It'd also be nice if Microsoft dropped some earbuds, since companies like Amazon and Huawei have also recently unveiled wireless audio devices. Don't forget, Microsoft surprised us with new Surface headphones at this same event last year, so it's not too much of a stretch to expect new audio products.

    A Windows feature meant to keep a device from overheating is causing Microsoft's Surface Pro 6 and Surface Book 2 to run at a cripplingly slow speed. The problem seems to stem from a firmware update that was released on August 1st, according to TechRepublic.

    Concussions are no joke -- just ask Cam Newton -- but a new diagnostic system developed in conjunction with Stanford University could revolutionize the way these head injuries are determined. The Eye-Sync, from the SyncThink company, uses a modified VR headset and custom software running on a consumer tablet to diagnose concussions in just one minute.

  • On the sidelines: how the NFL is making use of the Surface Pro 2

    Now that we've talked about the design process behind the NFL's Surface Pro 2s, it's time to show you how these things are actually being used throughout the league. It's worth noting that at least for now, the functionality of the Sideline Viewing System is limited to players and coaches annotating, drawing and looking at images from plays. Still, this is a notable first step in the NFL bringing technology into the game, and Microsoft wants to play a big role in that development. Sure, it doesn't hurt that the tech titan is said to have paid a huge sum of money to the NFL for the alleged five-year partnership, but it's safe to say that it's equally beneficial regardless. Microsoft's laptop/hybrid device began appearing on NFL sidelines earlier this year, at the start of the preseason, and the company tells us that the adoption rate of the Sideline Viewing System by players and coaches has been "great" up to now -- though a spokesperson wasn't willing to discuss specific numbers. That said, it's one thing to see these in action during games from afar, on TV, so when the opportunity to spend time with the Seattle Seahawks arose, to learn their game day workflow with the Surface Pro 2, we couldn't say no.

  • How Microsoft redesigned the Surface Pro for the NFL

    Earlier this year, Microsoft revealed its plans to take over NFL sidelines. How so? With a partnership with the National Football League, a collaboration reportedly valued at $400 million -- though neither party ever confirmed this. Powered by the Surface Pro 2, the Sideline Viewing System lets NFL players and coaches use Microsoft's laptop/tablet hybrid device to review images from plays almost instantaneously, as opposed to using the paper-based, black-and-white method that's been in place for decades. Not only is it faster, but it's also more efficient, since it allows team members on the sidelines and those in the booths above to view any markups in near real time, something that's made possible by digital pen input. But, as expected, before getting approval from the NFL on the final version, Microsoft went through many design iterations of the casing that protects the Surface Pro 2 during games. It needed to find a solution that would meet the requirements of the league; it had to be rugged enough to handle various weather extremes, from 100-degree temperatures in Arizona to sub-freezing conditions in Wisconsin. At the same time, though, the technology giant wanted to strike a balance in the aesthetics, keeping it fully functional, protected and easy for any player to hold.

  • CNN anchor caught on-air using a Microsoft Surface tablet as an iPad stand

    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. CNN commentators using Microsoft @surface tablets as iPad stand. Facepalm. pic.twitter.com/BPxWTf2zhI - Adam (@adamUCF) November 5, 2014 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. Even the good people at CNN who have Microsoft surface tablets in their face hide iPad ... - http://t.co/Sz6CpzLrEg pic.twitter.com/7Bam8uyI2G - Melbourneer (@_Melbourneer_) November 5, 2014 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. via GeekWire

  • Microsoft paid NFL $400M for Surface deal; announcers call them iPads

    If you happened to catch any NFL games last week, you might have noticed the conspicuous product placement of Microsoft Surface tablets. From the field to in-game studio analysis, Surface tablets were at every turn. The reason? Microsoft last year paid the NFL a cool US$400 million as part of a five-year agreement that will see the NFL provide enhanced football viewing experiences for Xbox users. On top of that, the Microsoft Surface is now the "Official Tablet of the NFL." Unfortunately, the announcers accidentally called the Surface tablets "iPads" on two separate occasions. Here we have a clip from this Monday's Cardinals and Giants game. Updated: Guess what? Microsoft has made sure that the clip was removed from Vine. Apparently $400 million is good for nothing these days! In an even more comical clip (via The Verge), we see announcers talking about Drew Brees dutifully studying game tape on his trusty iPad.

  • Here's how Microsoft plans to take over NFL sidelines

    Are you ready for some football? Because Microsoft most certainly is. To go along with the introduction of a new NFL app for Xbox One and Windows 8, the software giant has also revealed how it plans to help professional coaches and players during games. As part of an ongoing partnership with the National Football League, which began last year and was reportedly worth $400 million over five years, Microsoft created what it calls a Sideline Viewing System. Naturally, the company's own hardware is a key component to this; the new system is powered by Surface Pro 2 tablets, and it allows NFL teams to review photos of plays instantly on the sidelines and up in the booths. For instance, say the quarterback goes back to the bench, the Surface can then be used to see the opposing team's defensive formation during the most recent drive -- and the same goes for the coaching staff that keeps an eye on the game from higher ground. Players are also able to draw on these images, making it easier for other members of the team to see something which stands out and needs to be checked.
