she probably doesn't know anything about the differences between them
I think she knows the differences between them considering that she's being paid by Msft to promote the product. They surely must have enlightened her on the 'benefits' of using a Surface tablet compared to an iPad.
"As beings of finite lifespan, our contributions to the sum of human knowledge is one of the greatest endeavors we can undertake and one of the defining characteristics of humanity itself"
Her agent will have made a quick phone call to tell her there is $50K in it for her to say something nice about the Surface, so she just got one of her people to tweetedwhat Microsoft wrote and banked the fifty grand.
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
I was more concerned about the detergent discolouring or harming the plastic
Nup. The color is all the way through - there shouldn't be a drama. Boil the kettle, pour the water in a cup with a little normal washing up detergent. Wait a bit until your wife can put her finger in it, then chuck in a couple of lego. Stir. If no damage go for the dishwasher (on the shortest cycle).

I don't speak Idiot - please talk slowly and clearly
That's funny, not because you're being a smarty pants but because I'm always being told that I've loaded the dishwasher incorrectly. Did you know that baby bottles have to have something else next to them so they don't flip?
if you buy it new, they say that you can wash it at 30°C in your washing machine. I would not tumble or centrifuge it. Put some lego as a test in an old pilow cover. That should work. I would not put it into the dishwasher. The dishwasher cleaner is very "strong" and aggressive.
When I realized there is one under my mousepad, propping up my mouse to a comfortable level. I put it there when I started my current job 2 years ago, as — of all the books my predecessor left behind — I deemed it to be the least likely book for me to ever read. Looks like it will instead be the first.
There's actually a book on that? When it appeared on my last server, I looked, but found nothing. So it went unimplemented and unused until I decommissioned the server and became a normal user, with only a PC and a laptop to consider. I never did learn what SharePoint is good for, if anything...
Referring to the results as "earth-shaking," Grotzinger says, "This data is gonna be one for the history books. It's looking really good." He adds, "We're getting data from SAM as we sit here and speak, and the data looks really interesting. The science team is busily chewing away on it as it comes down."
