Mailbag: A perfect 10This week, we learn some basics about CNET (like what the "C" stands for) and uncover a perfect 10 product.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Hey everyone, I'm Molly Wood. And welcome to the CNET Mailbag. The show where we read your letters and e-mails about the stuff we do here at CNET. Now last week I announced closed captioning here at CNET TV, and it kind of rolled out, and then rolled back in, and then out, and then in again. But it seems to be pretty stable now, and the world rejoiced. [ Applause ] >> Except for one guy who said that he downloaded the entire Mailbag video, took over an hour, and there weren't any captions in the downloaded video announcing the captions. Ouch. See, it turns out that they only released support for closed captioning in QuickTime videos about a month ago so we're still working on adding it to our downloadable videos, and the iPod doesn't support captions so if you're watching it there you wouldn't even see them. But hopefully we'll roll it out and the iPod will start supporting it right around the same time. And then everyone will be happy. Yeah, right. Next up, David wants to know has any product received a 10 on cnet.com. Well David, it's I before E except after C. But as for the product in recent memory the only one to get a 10 was the 2007 Lexus LS 460 L. So start saving. Now for some CNET Network's basics. Friend wants to know what does the C in CNET stand for. I have always pondered on that question. It actually stands for computer. CNET is an acronym for the computer network, which is kind of funny because of how now we call ourselves CNET Network -- computer network network? Get it? Ahem. And last, Leon says I've been watching CNET TV over a year now. I would like you to make a show only for gaming, like game reviews, previews, not just boring game trailers. Leon, my friend, welcome to Gamespot.com, a CNET networks property. It's a whole web site dedicated to video games. Video game reviews, trailers, yes, not boring ones. A weekly show called GameSpot Live that's game stuff galore. Go crazy, dude! That's it for this week's edition of the CNET Mailbag. Keep the feedback coming, email@example.com is the e-mail address or you can send me a postcard at 235 Second Street, San Francisco, California, 94105. See you next time. ^M00:02:13 [ Music ]
