They couldn't get rid of the echo with Skype, so they had to use Windows Live Messenger video chat instead. (Or Video Kinect, perhaps?)
Nah. How about this:

You guys gotta fix the end of the show where Paul is throwing air at the camera. Send him some of the channel9 little toy dudes.
Microsoft Junkie says put the Skype logo back.

He was actually using the new Nokia 920 Windows 8 Phone and the image stabilization feature is so good that his girlfriend was actually holding it, instead of using a tripod.
