    Dish network has introduced a new DVR called The Hopper that allows customers to skip all commercials while watching TV. It's only $200. Interested?

    Nope! I actually like some commercials. I usually skip, but as I'm FF'ing, I may see something and RR back to see what it is.

    No. It's another gadget to futz with. Technology comes up with these ways to get around commercials and someone else designs a way to sneak them back in.

    Yeah, now we see them on Youtube videos and at the movie theater before the previews start.

    On the other hand, I could skip those stupid Hopper commercials. Eh...not for $200.

    That'd be nice to have, but I'm not shelling out $200 for it.
