Microsoft, bored of bashing Apple, bashes Samsung

Look how substandard the Galaxy Tab is.

If you’re in business, you have to get used to criticism.

If you’re in the gadget business, however, you’re nobody unless Microsoft criticizes you.

What other conclusion can one reach after Redmond’s assault on its various rivals?

There’s the constant poking at the iPad’s foibles. Then there’s the sublimely gauche Scroogled campaign, which accuses Google of being little more than a malevolent dictatorship.

Samsung, though, has been relatively free of Microsoft’s barbed fire. Until now, that is.

For Microsoft has chosen the Thanksgiving weekend to give thanks that its own Surface RT is so much more intelligent and useful than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

I’ll admit I haven’t seen an enormous proliferation of Tab 10.1s adorning coffee shops, holding cells and public transport. So it makes for a slightly odd target for Microsoft.

However, Redmond wants you to be clear, should you be vacillating between a Tab and a Surface RT that its machine is superior.
