CNN Discovers Promotional Surface Pros Make Fantastic iPad Stands

Last night, CNN wasn't just covering the mid-term elections. It was also pimping the Surface Pro 3, conspicuously placing a kickstand-ed unit in front of a bunch of its commentators. The catch? They were actually just being used as iPad stands.

As GeekWire points out, a few eagle-eyed viewers pointed out that behind every Surface Pro 3, there's an iPad running the show. https://twitter.com/surface

This comes on the heels of NFL commentators calling Microsoft's Surface an iPad and "iPad-like" after a 400 million dollar deal to do exactly not that. Still, at least it's making a solid case for kickstands. And if they can use this to saddle Wolf Blitzer with unsold Zunes and Kins for a month, it will all be worth it. [Geekwire via 9to5Mac]
