Digg Report: Today's #1 Digg, at a remarkable 9921 Diggs, is--surprisingly--about a Microsoft product, the Microsoft Surface. Even more surprising is that the comments are actually generally positive, as far as I can tell. That's unusual for a highly-Dugg story about anything related to Microsoft.

Incidentally, the technology itself is fascinating. Reminds me of Minority Reports, among other things. Put this interface onto a flat panel and mount it in mid-air. As a desktop, it seems a little constrained, but still pretty cool.

Of course, it would look nice on my Tablet PC, although unfortunately mine doesn't have a touch screen (rather, only a pen-based digitizer). Funny, though, until seeing this, I didn't see any need for one.
