While she appears to be a fan of the new Microsoft Surface tablet, she, or someone managing her Twitter account, was not paying attention and posted her love of it via their iPad. Oops!

Of course this is error in judgement is going viral around the globe. Let this be a note to celebrities, when endorsing a product, be sure you are not doing it from a competitor’s product. Especially when you are a “rep” for one of the companies.
