Mailbag tries to keep the gadgetsWhat happens to the gadgets we review after we're done reviewing them? Mailbag investigates.
^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Hey everyone I'm Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag. Now we got tons of letters this week so let's get started right away. Nick writes in, "Where do all the products go after you guys review them? Do you give it back to the company? Do you give it away to the editors or do you just have a whole basement just assigned to review products?" Nick I'm gonna check this out for you. ^M00:00:23 [ Music ] ^M00:00:27 >> Hey this looks cool. Can I have this when you're done reviewing it? >> No. >> Aw hey, can I have this? >> No. >> Who-o, can I have this? >> No. >> How about this one? >> No. >> This? >> No. >> This? >> Nope. >> This? >> Uh-uh. >> This? >> No. >> Who-o how about this? >> No. >> It turns out they're all review units that the companies loan us and we have to send everything back and we pretty much never get to play with anything. Or at least I don't. >> Next up a question about CNET TV. P.C. Hamster [assumed spelling] asks, "How about offering CNET TV in video-pod cast form like video DL-TV does, that would be so cool." >> Good news, P.C. Hamster and everyone who e-mails us about this constantly. The RSS feeds for individual shows and categories on CNET TV are back. Here's how you get them. Just use the category or the show that you're interested in from the black navigation bars at the top at the top of the page there like cell phones or the Buzz Report, and voila, you'll see a little pod cast link plus one click subscribing for iTunes. Sweet. Okay now it's not often that we get math corrections here at CNET but rat it's 44 right? On the last edition of The Queue the tech tidbit was 60% of PS2 owners who bought a Wii? And I just want to say that that is impossible. Well that sentence doesn't even make any sense but he goes on. The PS2 has sold over 100 million units. The Wii hasn't sold 10 to this day; so for this to be true then we would have to sell 60 million units at the very least. Okay we contacted Rich DeMuro about this and he said, "oh yeah, it should have been the other way around; 60% of Wii owners also have a PS2." See this is Rich's last week at CNET so he's kind of phoning it in. Hey wish you luck buddy. No seriously Rich really is leaving CNET TV and we really will miss him a lot. Bye Rich. All right. Le't's end today with a lightening round of random e-mail we've gotten from various feedback forms. Faruk [assumed spelling] Ogoulu [assumed spelling] says, "We watch TV sometimes." Bellu [assumed spelling] Daniel 2000 says, "Hi boys." Kantu Baga [assumed spelling] says, "I like to watch TV when on the cruise." And Monopoly JDogg [assumed spelling] says. "Fun fact, the average laptop has enough power to control one human eyeball." How do you control an eyeball? Okay that's it for this week's edition of the CNET Mailbag; keep your feedback coming. Mailbag@cnet.com or send me a postcard, 235 Second Street, San Francisco, California 94105. See you next time. ^M00:02:58 [ Music ] ^M00:03:02
