    Hey, "Home" is playing. Of course it is. It's the second press conference to play this song during a promo video.
  • David Carnoy 1/7/2013 11:32:19 PM
    Funny thing is the features are almost overwhelming.
  • John campbell 1/7/2013 11:32:36 PM
    I have a windows 7.10 phone why don't you support Microsoft product? For app for phone.
  • David Carnoy 1/7/2013 11:32:37 PM
    A lot of names/apps to keep track of.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:32:46 PM
    @David Carnoy Agreed. There's just so much of it. That can be intimidating for consumers who just want stuff to work.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:34:41 PM
    The Hopper Sling and all of the apps will launch in the next few weeks, he says.
  • David Carnoy 1/7/2013 11:34:43 PM
    The original Hopper and Joey required several software upgrades before they ran smoothly. Hope this Hopper does better out of the gate.

    Wow...the Gangnam Style dance was tailor made for the Hopper hop!

    There are 2 million Hopper Joeys at home, he says.
  • David Carnoy 1/7/2013 11:36:58 PM

    I just feel bad for the people who picked up the original Hopper last year. I'd be a little upset now.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:37:52 PM
