    I’m not making this up. Microsoft is offering a $200 minimum gift card for “gently used” iPads. The program is designed to promote Surface, but states: “Use [the gift card] towards the purchase of a Surface or other cool products at the Microsoft store”.

    The actually said “or other cool products at the Microsoft store”:

    The truly sad thing is that someone at Microsoft actually thought this was a good idea, that people would:

    a) trade in the world’s most popular tablet, for
    b) $200 towards a tablet that no one wants to buy, just before
    c) Microsoft announces all-new Surface tablets.

    Yeah, that’ll work!
