Yesterday Oprah Winfrey made a fool of herself, and Microsoft, when she tweeted about how much she loved the tech company’s new Surface tablet – from her iPad. By this morning the former talk show queen was back to what she knows best: poignant, if slightly nauseating, inspirational quotes.

“Confession of errors is like a broom which sweeps away the dirt and leaves the #surface brighter and clearer” – Gandhi
