Microsoft places ads for Surface tablet inside Grand Central Station
Remember when you were a kid and you had all your friends over and everyone was running around and your mom would scream, "What is this, Grand Central Station?" Well, there is a reason that she used that particular location. Grand Central Station is a busy place where New Yorkers and out of towners are scurrying around, trying to catch a train or bus. It is perhaps the most important and busiest public transportation hub in New York City. And that makes it a great place to advertise.

Now that ads for Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 tablet are beginning to, uh, surface, it certainly would make sense for the Redmond based tech giant to take advantage of the heavy foot traffic at Grand Central Station by putting up some ads showing off the Microsoft Surface.

Knowing New Yawkers (see how we did that) have a very low tolerance for anything that deters them from getting to point B from point A, many of them are going to walk right past the ad without giving it a second look. Others, though, are going to be intrigued. Microsoft has also put up ads in the Washington D.C. subway which should grab the attention of many commuters in the nation's capitol.
