Mailbag: CNET TV in HD!Wondering why some of our video downloads look so good lately? Mailbag's got the answers.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hey everyone, I'm Molly Wood. Welcome to the CNET Mailbag. The show where we take your feedback, answer your questions and sometimes, just revel in your weird comments. Last week, speaking of comments, we asked you to comment on our new look, but now we've got even more to discuss. You see, John is one of the many, many people who write in and say, "When are you going to deliver CNET TV in HD?" John, I'll let Nick answer your question. "Wow, I just got the new Quick Tip about time zones in Outlook in iTunes and it was 1280 by 720! This is truly great. I've been waiting for the higher detail downloads that aren't microscopic. I hope this is a glance at the future of CNET TV." Nick, John, everyone, the future is here. We here at CNET TV are now officially shooting in high-def. You'll see it in our video Podcast and when you download our videos from CNET TV. And as you may have read in the Wall Street Journal this week, you'll soon see our high-def video on the homepage at CNET.com. We totally rolled our redesign this week across all our sites and all our shows and I'm happy to say that most of you liked it. Like Patrick, who wrote, "Ahhhhh!! I love the new CNET look it's awesome!" The major complaint that most of you had was about our shows, specifically, our show open in fact. "I think the new opening is awful. It poop pooidy poop poop poop. I want the old one back!" And then like a hundred exclamation points there. Brad[presumed spelling] said, "New intro. Not good. What the heck was that? Please bring back the original intro in all its nostalgic glory." And Tom said, "Molly, bring back your postman with the funky little music. This intro is too ummm what's the word, blah." I miss the postman too. I'm not gonna lie. But did you see him at the end there? We try to keep him. Watch for him. Alright, speaking of the postman, it's time to get to your letters and postcards. Chris wrote to us from Ohio asking, "I have a question for you. Who is that old guy dressed as a mailman in the opening of mailbag? Is that your Dad? Also, can you make Brian Tong do the running man while hes texting on his phone. That would boost your ratings so much." Chris, we can't make Brian Tong do anything, but we could ask him and I bet he'll do it. Tune in next week. Also, no, that is not my Dad. I wanna give a shot out to Wilson in Singapore who sent me this awesome woven rug mouse pad. Thank you so much for that and also for the cute kitten postcard. Pono [presumed spelling] finally noticed that Geek Pop is gone and he is sad. We thought it was fun too, but not that many people watched it and it's been gone awhile dude. You kind of miss it that much. And Montgomery wants to know how I define gadget on the Buzz Report Gadget of the Week segment. The Gadget of the Week is the new checkpoint-friendly laptop bag from Aerovation. The Gadget of the Week is the Oral B Triumph with Smart Guide. Yup, it's an electric toothbrush. The Gadget of the Week is this guy, right behind me. ^M00:02:57 [ Music ] ^M00:03:01 >> However I want Montgomery, however I want. And that's it for this week everyone. Keep that feedback coming.
