The verge surface announcement article. Most popular ever?

I think the verges announcement article of the surface priceing and preorders is the most popular ever in the history of the verge. As of right now there are over 1700 comments and alot of the comments have more than 20 reccomendations. Ive never seen more than 20 reccomendations as long as Ive been reading the verge on any article.
