Microsoft Surface tablet gets run over at 60mph and survives
What is worse than forgetting that you left your brand new Microsoft Surface on the top of your car before driving away? How about watching a car drive over your tablet as you helplessly stand by. And for the record, this was the 64GB model with an included Touch Cover that cost $699. To make matters worse, this poor guy also had his smartphone drop off his lap when he got out of the car.

Amazingly, despite hitting the road, uh, surface and getting run over by a car, the tablet still worked fine. And as a way to remind the owner of the device to check the roof of his car before driving away in the future, there are some permanent marks left on the slate. Microsoft obviously has built the Surface ruggedly enough to withstand getting run over by a car at 60mph.We wonder if it could hold up through a night in the stockroom at the Walmart store in Pikesville, Kentucky.
