First off I'm super happy to know that you are visiting both our sites enough to bring this to our attention. While I'm not involved on those navigation decisions for Roadshow and CNET, I will definitely see to it that your feedback goes to our product managers and bring this subject to their attention.
Now to clarify things a bit, at least from my perspective. Even though Roadshow is under the CNET domain (http://cnet.com/roadshow) it is treated as a separate brand--this is the reason why it has it's own logo and does not sport the CNET red ball logo on any of the pages except for very subtle "by CNET" under the Roadshow logo.
It's similar to Download.com which still lives under the CNET domain name (http://download.cnet.com/) but it is separate brand as well.
I know, I know, it is confusing and I apologize for this.
Before I send your feedback to our product managers, can you share with me how you landed on a Roadshow page? Was it from the CNET homepage or from somewhere else? Do you visit Roadshow frequently or visit CNET primarily and crossover to Roadshow occasionally? And if you do visit Roadshow occasionally or frequently , what do you think of the overall site?
The reason I ask is because I know the Roadshow folks are doing some tweaks to the site in the near feature and since you use both our sites, it would be great to get some additional insight from you to send along with your initial feedback.
So if you don't mind, we'd definitely appreciate any additional feedback.
Thank you jfluxy for your time and feedback!
um, did the developer(s) who help create the roadshow page in cnet forget to have a link back to cnet.com homepage? I call that a bad apple, or cnet...
i have to manually edit the url to go back. i mean come on now.
