Microsoft's first Surface Pro 3 commercial hits all the right points

181

It's not trying to be abstract, it's not trying to be cheeky, and it's not making the case that it should be compared to the iPad or any other tablet.

One aspect of staying fit is tending to health issues that may crop up. WebMD is a popular website that provides you with a wide range of medical and health information ranging from diet to medication to home remedies. While WebMD should never replace a trip to the doctor's office, the website can improve your knowledge of health conditions and offer suggestions on how to live a healthier lifestyle.

The Windows Phone WebMD app isn't an official offering but does try to deliver WebMD's information to your phone. The app provides WebMD's health tools, information on health conditions and tips on living healthy.
