[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> What's up, Brian Tong here at CES 2010, [inaudible] with CNET. Now in my hand, this is the PopBox. If it sounds familiar, it's the next evolution of the Popcorn Hour Box. What they're really trying to do with this is make it a lot more consumer friendly. So what this box does, it has an internet port on it. It also has a USB port on the back. It will automatically detect computers or now [inaudible]. And then pump your movies, your photos, and your music into different categories that you can search on to find. So you don't have to do any of the work. It just throws them and groups them all together. Also, they're really pushing this as an open platform with an open API so a lot of companies can develop applications specific to the PopBox and then they're available at the Pop App Center so you can install them on this box. Now, it's going to be available sometime in March for the price of 129, but this is the next evolution of the Popcorn Hour. This is the PopBox. I'm Brian Tong at CES 2010
