Announcing CNET Scan and Shop for Droid

Culture
Hello, everyone! I�m Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where we read your email and snail mail, introduce new features on the site, and sometimes explain ourselves for the decisions you hate. And let�s get started � with a new feature! This week, we�re launching the CNET Scan & Shop app for Android phones. It lets you scan a barcode while you�re shopping in a store, and then you can get access to CNET reviews, which is great, and even BETTER, you can get price comparisons. You can search for products, too, but I think the barcode scanner thing is cooler. Plus you can make wish lists and sign up to get emails when the price drops, all kinds of stuff. Scan & Shop. Look for it in your Android marketplace. And now on to things you HATE. If you�ve seen our weekly show on TiVo, well, you know that we�ve recently canceled our weekly show on TiVo. And you�re none too happy. Scott writes: Well CNET. You've gone and done it now. No more cheefully sassy Molly Wood saying "Hello Tivo people!" That sucks and no mistake. Molly Wood is arguably the best thing about any of the many CNET video productions scattered all over the web. She's always funny, watchable, and often hilariously opinionated; all while being well-informed. Sorry to see you gone from my "Now Playing List", Molly. Thank you, Scott. I really am so, so sorry to see that show go. Basically, it wasn�t lack of viewers or anything like that. The TiVo people are some of the most passionate viewers we have! It�s just that � we were paying to be on TiVo. And we were paying a LOT. And once they rolled out subscriptions for the Series 3 TiVos and you could basically get any CNET show for free � the powers that be just decided they didn�t want to pay anymore. It�s not you. It�s us. And I�m really sorry. You can still subscribe to individual shows on your Series 3, and just between you and me, we�re kicking around the idea of some sort of digest video LIKE that show that would run on CNET TV. No promises, though. Ok, moving on, some lovermail for Loaded. Erik says: Hey molly! I just have to say, I just saw Miss Delcantie's video for shopping for charity. I had never known it was so easy! Superb job Natalie! And although Erik spelled NO part of Natali�s name right, I�m sure she appreciates the feedback, and definitely check out that special episode of Loaded � it aired November 25 and it�s called Shopping for Charity. It�s for a good cause! And now for some emails about things I can�t believe you care about. Jake says: Why did you rename the CNET Digital Dispatch email newsletter to "Today in CNET"????? The new name is HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!! Digital Dispatch is a cool name that sounds good. Today in CNET sounds plain, boring, and unoriginal. Wow, dude. You know the stuff inside is the same, right? But ok. Noted. Also, Adam says: Molly, I was catching up on mailbag and noticed that you are wearing the same (or very similar) shirts on 11/24 and 10/27. When I first noticed, I thought you need to expand your wardrobe - then i realized that your just a person of limited means like the rest of us and maybe you just really like flannel, I certainly do. They were a MONTH apart, Adam. Come ON. You�re killing me. And finally, let�s do some auto-incorrect. Dan was good enough to send a PICTURE, he says: My favorite iPhone suggestion of all time. It was supposed to be swamped. Swammerdam. Wow. iPhone is smarter than me. And sicker. Alex says: So yesterday I was texting my friend from my Iphone about the new puppies her dog had. I tried to type "Oh my god, I love puppies!" but for some reason my Iphone corrected it to this... "Oh my god, I boil puppies!". My friend now refuses to let me see her puppies, DAMN YOU IPHONE SPELL CHECK! That iPhone is messed up. And that�s it for this week, everyone, please keep your feedback and questions coming! Email me at Mailbag@cnet.com, or send your snail mail to 235 2nd St., San Francisco, CA, 94105. Thanks for watching, everyone.
