    Tom Brady probably has 35 IPP's, one for each room in the house.

    Yeah, he posted that on facebook. As for what tablet that is, I don't really care what he uses.

    What's interesting is if it isn't a Surface. Microsoft gave all the teams Surfaces to use at stadiums during games. So if Brady didn't choose a Surface as his leisure device, when he's already familiar with them from having them at work, that's interesting.

    I saw somewhere he was shopping for an apple watch back over the summer. He's probably an apple person. Microsoft is the nfl sponsor but if they upload things to the one drive he can access them anywhere and they have videos on websites they can easily access. The playbook they probably lock to whatever specific tablet he's assigned. but if its on field it has to be microsoft.

    It's no surprise. The best people want the very best products.

    Not really that interesting. For all we know he has a Surface too. Or the iPad was a gift. Or he's been using iPads since before the Microsoft gave them Surfaces, so he was familiar with iPads first. Or he just wants something with a bigger screen.

    We can't really infer what he thinks about other devices just because he uses an iPad Pro at home.

    "Best people" and "best products" are both highly subjective labels.

    MS/NFL did this last year, though I don't know if that extended down to the players or if it was just a team thing.

    Either way, he's got so much money, he probably won't even bat an eyelash at spending a thousand dollars.

    You can't really tell from the iPad, but if you zoom in on the keyboard, it's unmistakably a Smart keyboard.

    I swear those Surface devices are nothing more than props most of the time. The branding is everywhere but more often than not when they show the sidelines the coach isn't looking at a Surface.

    Thats likely because the surface died from low battery halfway through the game. I dont get why they are so popular. If you draw a diagonal line on the screen its wavy. if you dont draw the line super fast in any direction its wavy. It throttles like hell under stress. You only get like 3 and a half to 4 hours battery life on the surface 4.

    I would rather own a surface pro 3 then a surface pro 4 just judging from the problems posted all over the web.

    Funnily enough, I went to try a Surface Pro 4 in the local store, and drawing seemed perfectly unwavy to me, shaky hands aside.

    Maybe next time I'll come in with a straight-edge and really test it out.

    Our organization gave us Samsung's tablets two years ago: they are all collecting dust.
    A porn star ? :D

    Well, let's just say there's lots of ball play involved. :D

    I've seen players holding Surfaces a few times. Can't recall seeing any coaches with a Surface. But yeah, it's much more likely to see both players and coaches flipping through printouts in a folder.

    It's correct he could have other tablets. Even the super wealthy won't buy 3-5 tablets. Pointless. We know that he was given a sp4 as a gift. His Apple preference however is not a secret. Many pro athletes use apple. Brok has an iPhone. I don't think their personal preference says anything negative to the competition however. It's just one persons choice.

    Of course it is. But if you don't find it interesting, why are you even here? To tell us that we are wrong for being interested in something you dislike?

    Or it could have been space aliens, mind control... Who knows! Sasquatch could have been the one who took the picture!!!

    Oh, sorry, I thought we were concocting nonsensical excuses for why the picture doesn't mean what it most clearly means...

    Exactly. We can't infer a damned thing. From a picture that he chose to post with a device he chose to buy. Other than that, no matter what, it most certainly doesn't mean the most obvious thing, which is that he prefers the iPad Pro enough to buy one and pose with it for a photo that he chose to post publicly to his fans.

    I mean, seriously, who could infer that? Everyone knows the most obvious answer is always wrong. At least, when it goes counter to your own preferences, apparently.

    Another meaningless statement. By definition, anything with the term "best" is subjective. In case you missed it, that's what the OP meant in writing that.

    And, yes, the best people tend to buy the best products. It's what you do when you are the best. You tend to be able to afford whatever you want, so you buy what you consider the best.

    Why do you have a problem with that?[/quote]

    Okay, please relax a little. Why are you assuming that I have something against the iPad Pro or something? I've noticed that your post tend to be very defensive. I was just pointing out that some of the comments being made are simply inferences or assumptions. The picture tells us one thing: Tom Brady has on at least one occasion used an iPad Pro in his home. Nothing more, nothing less. My pointing that out doesn't mean that I'm against the product. If someone were to take a snapshot of me at home I might be seen using an Apple, Microsoft, or Google/Android device depending on the moment. I just think it would be silly for someone to make assumptions about my preferences based on that one snapshot.

    Oh, and I commented on the remark about the "best people using the best products" because it's subjectivity makes it pretty meaningless as an observation. Your interpretation seems to be the "best people" are those with the most money, and similarly "best products" are the ones that cost the most.

    I would think calling Tom "the best", would be more in reference to being the best QB, not the person with the most money. Maybe JoeBlow7777 doesn't know who Tom Brady is, or what he has done.
