The iHip headphones booth brought in Snooki from "Jersey Shore," but Dish Network featured even more of an animal: a real, live baby kangaroo.
Dish's press conference revolved around its new Hopper HD-DVR, which pairs with smaller Joey set-top boxes (get it?) for use on other TVs throughout the house. Dish hawked the new product line as "basically relaunching the company" -- and to celebrate, it brought out an actual joey.
Dish CEO Joe Clayton cuddled the creature briefly onstage, and a handler posed with the joey post-press conference for photos. The poor baby kangaroo was camera shy and tried to wriggle away. -Julianne Pepitone
