Few mortals can afford to shop like Oprah Winfrey. Fortunately for modern peasantry, however, she’s willing to share her “Favorite Things” each year so we can try to be more like her while Christmas shopping.
Some of the items she mentions are even affordable.
Like Microsoft’s Surface tablet computer, which retails for a mere $500 or so.
The former daytime talk show host likes the Surface so much she’s collecting them like bargain bin copies of “A Million Little Pieces.”
Sunday, she (or someone controlling her Twitter account) tweeted “Gotta love that SURFACE! Have bought 12 already for Christmas gifts. ”
Unfortunately for Microsoft, who may or may not have paid for the publicity, the tweet emanated from an iPad.
Oprah’s affair with the Surface must be a mere dalliance.
In 2010, she danced around an iPad adorned with angel wings. ”From our very first moment together, I knew it had stolen my heart,” she said. Let’s hope Oprah’s spiritual partner, Stedman Graham, wasn’t watching that episode.
I think I’ll just stick to my $200 Nexus 7.
