Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is sacking the Microsoft Surface tablet. 

Comcast SportsNet New England is reporting that Belichick, who was seen spiking his Surface during the Bills game in week 4, declared he's, "done with tablets." 

"I’ve given them as much time as I can give them. They’re just too undependable for me," Belichick said on Tuesday. "I’m going to stick with pictures as several of our other coaches do as well because there just isn’t enough consistency in the performance of the tablets. I just can’t take it anymore." 

Microsft was quick to respond. 

“We respect Coach Belichick’s decision, but we stand behind the reliability of Surface,” Microsoft’s statement read. “We continue to receive positive feedback on having Surface devices on the sidelines from coaches, players and team personal across the league. In the instances where sideline issues are reported in NFL games, we work closely with the NFL to quickly address and resolve.”
