I'm Craving John Falcone's Cool New Hat

You better believe it.


So, maybe a few of you are ticked off at Gizmodo for that whole iPhone prank . But in my esteemed opinion, they've righted themselves, because they gave CNET senior editor and fellow Craver John Falcone a cool hat and a totally butt-kicking nickname. He's not just John Falcone anymore, he's John "Wayne" Falcone, the "Sheriff-Geek" of CNET! He can brandish five universal remotes at a time and look darned good doing it. Trust me, you don't want to be running into this guy in a dark alley late at night.

Forget solar-powered fan hats from Japan. They're for sissies. The headwear to be sporting among tech gurus these days is a white cowboy hat. And, by the way, I'm really pumped that I work down the hall from Falcone. Because the next time I see him, I'm going to be greeting him with a cheerful "What up, Sheriff?"

P.S.: Gizmodo, if you ever run into a situation where you feel like assigning action-movie identities to Cravers again, I have a tip for you. Mike Yamamoto has always wanted to be a pirate.
