Hawaii Five-O has become such a common place to find Windows devices that eventually they are just going to rename the show “Microsoft Product-Placement.” In the past we’ve heard characters say such horribly forced lines like “just Bing it” and do unnecessary searches on their Windows Phones.
Microsoft Surface is the next product to find some screen time on Hawaii Five-O. Officer Kalakaua whips out a Surface tablet to do some quick research on the go, she makes sure to show off the kickstand and Touch Cover before she looks up a license plate number. But wait…how is she doing this outside of a WiFi network?
We love seeing Microsoft products show up in TV and movies, but every time it happens it seems so forced. They need to work on using the products in a more natural way.
