Less than a week ago, Microsoft dangled a $200 store credit to anyone who wanted to trade in an iPad for a Surface tablet. Now, the total has climbed to $350 via a new deal.
It’s not as simple as all that, however. Microsoft’s previous offer covered “gently used” iPad 2, 3, and 4s, which users had to simply tote into a Microsoft store and redeem, in a partnership with CExchange.
This is getting difficult to watch.

Because people don’t get it? Because the Apple fanboys are out in full force? Because it’s a bad ad?
Or because the “Surface Pro sells out” reports are likely because many outlets only received one or two units?
Now the Microsoft Surfaces make sense. One’s for play and work, while the other… wait.

Microsoft can rip off the aesthetic of Apple’s retail stores all it wants, but the actual experience of taking incredible care of the customer defies ripoff artists. Either you have people who get it, or you don’t.
