    Technology as part of the news is a fun trope, even if it tends to add less than most newsfolk expect. Don’t tell CNN that, of course; Jon Stewart needs the material.

    However, what would happen if a reporter tried to use what appears to be CNN’s Magic Wall fused with a Microsoft Surface – the Big Ass Table edition – that didn’t want to cooperate? Guess how well this is going to end.

    The video is funny, but better is the unending laughter from off camera, as the dude tries to get the damn screen to not be such a pain. He struggles valiantly. The laughter continues.

    Bet you can’t watch it just once.

    Sure it’s not Friday, but you still deserve a bit of a laugh to keep the spirits high.
