Microsoft’s Surface Makes For a Decent Skateboard

What happened to Microsoft? Not only has it just busted out some pretty decent tablets, but its execs seem to know how to have fun too. Steven Sinofsky, head of the Windows unit, decided to mount some skate trucks on the back of a Surface tablet and ride that thing around Microsoft's campus.

Of course, it's just a PR stunt to show how hardy the Microsoft Surface is, but there are a lot more dull ways to do that. And yes, Sinofsky did drop it and show off the fact that it still worked, but skating around on a $500 tablet—well, you wouldn't catch Apple doing that, would you? [Twitter via AllThingsD]
