Surface PC survives New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick temper tantrum
Ain't nothin' gonna break Surface's stride.
If you tuned in to the football game between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs this weekend, you may have caught Patriots coach Bill Belichick throwing his Surface Pro tablet into the stands in a fit of rage. But don't shed any tears for the Surface: they're designed to hold up to just this sort of abuse, at least according to Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panay.
"We quality test for this exact scenario," Panay said in a tweet. "It's fine."

Of course, Surface Pros used by NFL coaches on the field are protected by massive protective cases. Obviously, we wouldn't recommend you go tossing yours around your yard should a temper tantrum ensue.
No word on whether Belichick could survive a similar impact.
