Mailbag: How to tweak your new HDTVThis week, we tell you how to find the best settings for your new TV, show off some of your art, and make fun of Molly's clothes.
Hey, everyone, I'm Molly Wood, and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where we take your feedback about the stuff we do here at CNET. First, I got some ART in the mail! Sheila ... or shwala ... I think Sheila, from Savannah, sent this amazing card where she illustrated some of the things we've talked about on various shows or podcasts! And they are AMAZING! Check this out! You'll have to listen to Gadgettes to get the Janis Chicken thing. Ok, to the email. Steven sent this in from his iPhone ... You should have cnettv for iPhone the rss reader is cool but dose not load how bout a cnettv for iPhone love the show See, that's my big complaint about the iPhone. The keyboard. If you have to go to a different screen to find the period, you're never going to use any periods in your sentences. ANYWAY, Steven, you're going to love this! iphone.cnet.com. ALL the cool CNETTY goodness, plus, CNET TV videos. You're SO welcome. Ok, next up, Guy wrote in and said: I just bought the Samsung LN32 A450, and just saw your review of it. I love the picture out of the box, but would love to know the exact settings you guys used to get what you thought was the best picture. Well, Guy, here's David Katzmeier with a response. In other CNET suggestions, Troll wrote in and said: cars suck, how about some real high performance hardware? ZX-14, Hyabusa, Yam 1300, even a honda Once I figured out what those were, I asked Brian Cooley, in an email: Hey, any chance we'd ever branch out into motorcycles? And can I use your answer in Mailbag? And he replied: "Motorcycles suck." No, just kidding. He actually said: "Um, yeah, but remember, we focus on cabin tech. That gets a little thin on two wheels. There's only so much I can say about the fact the speedometer is illuminated and the stereo is, well, not there." Ok, and finally, we got some awesome HATER MAIL this week. First up, some thoughts about my wardrobe: On the April 24th Today in Tech History piece, Molly wore something that resembled a cross between a ninja suit, a hospital scrub and the Inspector Gadget trench coat. Please tell her that stuff like this is why she makes my day. HA! She kills me. Love, The Toecutter That might not be hater mail, actually, I don't know. It made me laugh. But THIS email ... Kent German passed along some mail he got from MG about his column on 10 things you didn't know you could do with your cell phone. It says: Thank you for explaining how my camera phone can be used to take photos, but: With the job market as difficult as it is, I am hoping that they are only paying you a few dollars to write what you do. Not all of us are fifth graders with Attention Deficit Disorder... They pay me only a few dollars a day, but I'm working my a** off as an educator, 11 hours a day. Take it up a notch on your next article please. "other users may find new ways to use their cell phone that they didn't know before" - yes, but my paternal grandmother will be 85 next month, and she: "has all this down". Sincerely, MG Nice one, MG, love the tone, especially. You'll be happy to know we pay Kent exactly what we think he's worth ... which is A LOT. And that about does it for this week. Keep that feedback coming. Mailbag@cnet.com, or send me a postcard. 235 2nd St., San Francisco, CA, 94105. See you next time.
