NYT's Pogue takes a lesson from CNET

As host of my own vlog, The Queue, I often wonder if fellow vloggers ever watch my show. I wonder if the The New York Times' David Pogue, on his way into work, takes out his iPhone and checks out The Queue, or Top 5.

As I'm commuting home yesterday afternoon, I fire up the old iPhone and decide to watch some video podcasts. After a little Geek Brief TV and Buzz Report, it's time for David Pogue. As host of my own vlog, The Queue, I often wonder if fellow vloggers ever watch my show. I wonder if Pogue, on his way into work, takes out his iPhone and checks out The Queue, or Top 5. I wonder if Kevin Pereira, at his G4 desk, quietly watches CNET Live.

Well, you can imagine my surprise, when exactly 52 seconds into Pogue's latest video, "Dave's Cutting-Room Floor," there's a quick clip of my New York colleague, John Falcone, doing a CNET First Look of the TiVo HD. It was the proof I'd been seeking all along! Others in the business are keeping a close eye on the competition! Even referencing them in THEIR videos!

And by the way, John Falcone seems to get the bulk of the attention around here. Go figure.
