Oprah Skypes with a Sub, Gets Skinny on Life Submerged

That Oprah, always using product tie-ins in new and different ways, this time jiving with the commander of the USS Louisville "The Slugger" submarine—which is 60 feet underwater off the coast of Hawaii—via Skype.
They claim this is the first time anybody has video Skyped from a submarine to anyone, let alone Her Oprahness. If you get past the commander's canned speech at the beginning, and the obvious advertorial nature of the promo, you actually get a cool glimpse of life aboard a submarine, with 146 dudes, no ladies and just six toilets. They connect to the internet via their periscope antenna, which sticks up above the water and grabs some network (presumably satellite, but that close to Hawaii, it could be cellular). It's crazy stuff, so have a listen. [Oprah]
