Have you dug your rakes out from the depths of your garage? Are you watching baseball playoffs? Do you lament the preponderance of pumpkin-flavored beer? If so, you know it’s October, and the start of the Dad 2.0 Announcement Season! And we’re tremendously excited to kick it off by announcing that our first Presenting Sponsor of the 2014 Dad 2.0 Summit is Microsoft, which will introduce the Dad 2.0 community to its brand-new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets.
The Surface 2 comes preinstalled with Microsoft Office RT, but the Surface Pro 2 runs the full Office 2013 suite, making it the lightest, most versatile, fully functioning PC on the market. Even cooler, both let you create multiple user accounts, allowing the kids their own space to play games and watch movies without disturbing Dad’s settings or work-in-progress.
These exciting new devices are selling like crazy on pre-order, but Microsoft will have plenty on hand in New Orleans for Dad 2.0 attendees to try out for ourselves. Until then, there may be a few surprises … watch this space for more details!
