NFL Chooses Microsoft

from http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/new-england-patriots
Quote:
"Coaches and players will soon have access to a variety of cutting-edge Microsoft solutions, including Surface tablets to enhance on-field communications, photo viewing and play calling. Microsoft and the NFL envision a sideline of the future with players reviewing in-game photos from different camera angles directly from the sideline and head coaches calling plays off connected Surface tablets instead of today's static paper products. With Microsoft technology, NFL coaches, players and other personnel will have the technology they need to improve decision-making and on-field performance."
Great product placement and promotion. Google and Apple must be very disappointed.

The NFL will also be pushing content to fans via the new XBox One. You'll get extra on screen content while watching NFL games via the overlay/snap function and/or XBox Smart Glass app to your tablet or phone

I've been horribly disappointed by Xbox Done. Microsoft has been expending a lot of effort to divest itself of my patronage and has been largely successful.

I wonder what this will mean for teams like Denver Broncos who have switched to iPads to replace their paper play books.

The rivalry between teams will turn lethal as teams fight to win for their favourite technology?

Given MSFT's reputation for security, it will only be a matter of minutes before opposing teams crack the wireless encryption codes used to pass plays back and forth. All's fair in love, war, and football.

The NFL may have contracts with the teams that allow them to force the use of a particular item, sort of like the team can do with players, and the IOC has done with Olympic athletes.

Then again, maybe slapping a windoze logo on an iPood, will suffice.

OMG, who knows what will happen next?
I see it now.
Powerful spotting scopes catching the catcher and manager's signals.
Power radio receivers catching the on field helmet radio traffic.
Powerful translators, machine, and Navajo, interpreting all the hash.
Powerful parabolic sound disks catching the on field chatter from managers, coaches, players.

Wait, we are already there.
