Mailbag: Feel-good holiday episode
Hey, everyone, I'm Molly Wood, and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where
take your feedback and answer your questions about the stuff we're doing here at
And this week ? it?s the holiday cheer edition. Here are some of the nicest
sent over the past year about the CNET folks you like, the shows you dig, and
decisions that made you happy.
For EXAMPLE, we went through QUITE the drama with our show open and the
disappearing mailman and music. But we got him back, and Thom from Honolulu was
one of many to say:
YEAH!!!!!!!!! Thank you for bringing the mailman back in the intro. It's where
You?re welcome, Thom.
Ok, let?s get some love for the ACTUAL people who work here! Jenny H says:
Brian Tong is awesome. I love watching him on prize fight and office hour with
yet still really cool sense of style. He has a really awesome personality even
if it is
somewhat neurotic sometimes :) I hope I can see more of him and his talents on
the coming years.
Tom Valentine says:
I would also just want to let you folks at CNET know how great a job you're
just bought a new computer on Black Friday and I refused to consider any
got bad reviews from you guys (or don't have one yet).
I officially designate CNET as Website
Most Deserving of People's Love and Appreciation. Since my last name is
have the authority to do that. Thanks so much, you guys are awesome!
Our own Natali Del Conte is HARDLY immune to the lovermail. Matthew says:

Our other editors get recognized, too, don?t think they don?t. You know who gets
a lot of
lovermail around here? Bonnie Cha. It?s true. She?s got a big fan base. And
Allan D. can
spot ?em under the makeup ? he says:
OMG!! That video of Donald and Jasmine on the Buzz Report was
AAAASOMMMEE!! I'm a Huge fan of those guys.
More videos of them Please!!! Pretty please, with sprinkles?
Henrique from Brazil is all about the news ? he says:
I am writing to give my compliments to Kara Tsuboi.
After I signed up for "All CNET HD Video Podcasts" on iTunes, I have had the
opportunity to watch all the great news coverage that she does. She has a very
and clear style and, besides, she seems like such a nice person. Could you pass
Henrique my friend, I just did.
In other international love, Guillermo from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic,
is all about the
CNET Live. He says: and i just wanted to congratulate you all for doing that
show, that is a must
see for me everyday. You, Tom, Brian and everybody else in there really know
your stuff. i
haven't missed a cnet live show yet, since the beginning. i wouldn't dare
without checking you guys first.
By the way, please tell Brian Cooley that i'm the other guy who bought the Zune
besides him and
i love it.
Kurt has something for me and the rest of the CNET gang:
After 2 years of having cnet as my home page I wanted to express my
appreciation. You guys
are great. I think Molly sparked my interest originally don?t let her go. Her
wit, sarcasm, along with
a much needed feminine touch in this industry has kept me coming back for more.
Cnet really seems like a wonderful organization and I hope that you are all
having as much fun
as it comes across. Keep up the good work.
Thank you, Kurt ? and speaking of whether we?re having fun, Jeremy wants to know
I know you guys seem friendly in your video clips... but is the CNet crew
person? If I see, let?s say, Molly Wood, Brian Cooley, or Tom Merritt, at CES,
be absolutely terified to say hey?
Well, Jeremy, CES is just around the corner, and we?ll be there ? and we ARE
person. Except Brian Tong. Total diva. No, just kidding. Please come by our
stage in the
South Hall and say hi! We would love to see you there.
