Microsoft Microsoft's applied sciences department manager Stevie Bathich explains why the 1366x768 Surface RT screen is actually better than the iPad's Retina display - fancy display technology talk. Conclusion? "Doing a side by side with the new iPad in a consistently lit room, we have had many people see more detail on Surface RT than on the iPad with more resolution." I'm sure there's some truth behind the sciency talk, but I highly doubt that the Surface's display bests the iPad's. Seeing is believing, but since The Netherlands is not important, I won't get the opportunity to compare for a long time to come.

Amazingly, person from company1 says product1 is better in arbitrary way when compared to product2; made by company2...

This style of marketing works on people way too often because it introduces the magic factor. You don't have to state anything true, just repeat until the crowd assumes it must be right and they just can't see it correctly.
