Uri’s favorite Tango moment…”My daughter is away at college, so we Tango everyday. I knew she was going to a bonfire at the beach and wanted to Tango with her and check in. It was still light out and I could see her friends and the ocean clear as day. They asked if I could show them the last few minutes of the basketball game on TV, so they all watched and cheered on their team from the beach. It was very funny and made me see all of the different ways people will be using Tango in the future.”
