It's not just that we don't like change. The old guy was so cool, and the new guy is so lame. His voice isn't that bad, but the copy they have him reading is horrible.
The first time I heard the new Earthlink Guy, I thought it was Tom playing a joke. And it's not even April 1st yet! But it was one of those socially awkward moments that felt like like listening to a joke and never hearing the punch line. 'Though I was in the gym working out alone and listening to my iPod, I actually looked around to make sure no one was watching.
Why can't we bring back the old Earthlink guy? It's not as if he had to come to the CNET podcast studio every day to record or anything, did he? He was just a one-time recorded sound clip, right? So bring back the clip! I like having that one little piece of constancy in my day; a time to relax, unwind, and repeat along with the cheesy tag lines.
If you guys bring back the old Earthlink Guy, I'll pay twice as much as I already do for the podcast. No, wait, I'll pay a ba-jillion times the current price for only a bit of ''anything-possible'' goodness.
Please! Do the right thing!
