World Cup reporter types sideways thanks to tablet malfunction

Time for some good old-fashioned ingenuity ... kind of.

Technology is amazing, but darn it if computers can't be tricky these days. It used to be simple: Plug in, turn on, look at screen -- now all these new-fangled tablets are changing up the game.

One poor reporter was struggling with his iPad in the press box. It seemed like a great plan for mobility in Brazil, but all went awry when the screen wouldn't rotate properly. In this situation you have three options:

  1. Deal with the tablet in portrait mode.
  2. Find an alternate computer.
  3. Spend the entire game with your head crooked like an inquisitive puppy and work against gravity.
Poor guy is going to have a bad crick in his neck for sure.
