CNET on your big screen TV
Hello, everyone! I�m Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where I
always ask you to send me snail mail and then I never read it on the show! That�s because
I�ve been saving it all up � for a snail mail special. I�ve got a nice little stack of letters
and postcards to run through today, and a few email questions to answer, too. Let�s get
started with a postcard from Luxembourg!
Danny writes to say �I�m a big fan of CNET. I�m Filipino and me and my wife live here.
I�d just like to say that I enjoy CNET a lot, esp you, Jasmine France (hot!) and the rest of
Thanks, Danny. Luxembourg looks lovely.
Joanne a.k.a engnr_chik writes to say, �since I send you a card from the Big Island last
year, I thought I would continue the tradition from Maui. The weather is fine and the
snorkeling is great.�
Heh. Thanks. Meanie. I also got this anonymous postcard, which says only, �Hello from
Hello, Japan! And Graham says,
�Ni hao! I picked this up in Xi�an last year. Congratulations on BOL�s 1000 Episode! I
wish I could be there, but my fianc� and I will return from China on the 22nd. She even
lives in Petaluma! Terrible timing! I enjoy the CNET video podcasts especially since
China does not block them anymore.�
Ok, here�s how long it takes a postcard to get here from China. He says they�ll return on
the 22nd � and he means, of JUNE, since that�s when the BOL 1000th episode was. And I
got this postcard on August 7th. Wow. Welcome home, Graham!
And finally, Austin sent me this letter with a note on the envelope that says, �This is the
spelling misstate/mess-ups that were not our faults. Hope to see this on your show.�
And there�s a picture here that says, I finally realized, �cnet is my faveorite� � I think he
might have the pipe in the wrong place, but that�s a pretty cool like, potato word. And
then he mailed what I assume is an autocorrect submission, but it has a bad word in it. I
love snail mail. Thanks, Austin!
Ok, moving on to your emails. Kathryn gives me a nice opening into announcing a cool
new feature for you � she says:
OMG!! I love I can now set up season passes on my tivo for all the cnet shows I love.
Now cnet tv can be on my tv and not on my sad 9 inch netbook screen.
Thanks CNET :)
That�s right, you can now get CNET TV video through your TiVo. To find it, press the
TiVo button, and scroll down to Video on Demand. Choose �Browse Web Videos,� and
you can cruise up and down the list of titles until you find CNET. Then just start picking
shows. I also host a weekly wrap-up called CNET TV Tech Weekly, where I choose cool
First Looks and other video, and you should totally subscribe to that, too! It�s excellent. I
And finally, at long last, some lovermail for me. Tyler writes to say:
As a long-time listener of Buzz Out Loud, (since about episode #200), I have heard you
mention the Gadgettes podcast many times. However, I was never really that interested in
it. I decided to give it a shot, and listened to several episodes today. I can safely say that
you and Kelly are some of the wittiest tech people in podcasting, I was literally laughing
out loud. Everyone should listen to Gadgettes! Thanks for the great info, and for the
Awesome, Tyler. Thank you. See? Stop resisting, everyone. Gadgettes: it�s not just for
And that�s it for this week, everyone! Keep the feedback and questions coming! Email
