Microsoft couldn’t sell the Windows Surface RT tablets they built, so they wrote off nearly a billion dollars. Now there’s word from Kevin Bostic that Microsoft is giving away tablets. With a catch.
Microsoft is already offering its Surface RT tablet device to educational institutions for just $199, but now the software giant is giving classrooms the opportunity to earn free units by using Bing. Continual use of Bing generates credits for the Bing Rewards program. Microsoft pools the credits for each school, and when a school reaches 30,000 credits, Microsoft sends the institution a Surface RT unit with a capacitive Touch Cover attachment.
Search, and ye shall find… free stuff.
