The Opera App Store has been out a few weeks. It doesn't have Amazon. However, I have intel that a new Amazon app IS being worked on.

Android streaming was being shown privately. Suggesting it's not as far along as they expected and/or they're saving the announcement for when less folks are making noise. Strategically, I think they made a mistake - they had an opportunity to put a stake in the ground with an announcement and a date if the timing isn't now. Same with a 'new apps story'. Having said that the TV watching stunt/gamble paid off and the company should get some decent press opportunities (think television morning show), assuming they're working the phones hard this weekend. But folks like us who are already customers and know what Roamio is about, it was a very dull TiVo CES.

Amen.

Take the money wasted on a stupid advertising gimmick, give it to the developers, and see what happens. Get a few million Facebook posts about Android (and dare I say Windows 8) streaming, and see it on GMA tomorrow morning. Watching TV until you pass out from exhaustion isn't even interesting. If the press actually gives it a faint nod over the latest "Miley Cyrus singing toddler" video I'd be surprised.
