1. James did an unbelievable job, his videos were instructive, interesting and funny.

2. It is never the right time to 'replace' someone.

3. James Kim the person isn't being replaced.

4. CNET is a company and needs to be competitive.

I'm sure CNET agonised over this, it is a decision frought with emotion. No one affected by this will ever forget James or the stunning work he did, and it is still very fresh and raw for all of us.

CNET can't go on with out him... or at least someone who tries to fill his shoes.

And he looked like he loved his job.

While he cannot be replaced in our hearts, I think we could save some space for his eventual replacement.

Im sure their looking for another person to step up and be senior music editor (or whatever the title really is). Im sure they are just having trouble finding someone as good as him! Just cool off, you screwing around in the forums isn't going to change any minds, it'll probably make more people think your an insensitive *******.

Have a nice day!

I believe that...

I think that he is still with Cnet in their thoughts and prayers constenly and always will be. I also agree that "replace" is not the correct termonolgy

after the great job she's done, why not?

But yes, CNET is going have to fill in his spot. And whoever it is has BIG shoes to fill.
