Microsoft Paid The NFL $400 Million To Use Its Tablets, But Announcers Are Calling Them iPads
Before the 2014 NFL season began, Microsoft and the NFL struck a $400 million 5-year deal. The major component of this deal was that the Microsoft Surface would become the "official tablet of the NFL" with both coaches and players using the Surface on the sidelines during games. But Microsoft and the league ran into a problem during week one of the season when at least two television announcers mistakenly referred to the tablets as iPads and giving a huge rival unexpected exposure.
