CNET makes beautiful babies

Culture
Hello, everyone! I�m Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where we read your feedback, open your snail mail, try to answer questions about the things we�re doing, and create work for our podcast producer, Jason Howell. Let�s start with a followup to last week�s show � after all the complaining that happened about our video ads, I honestly thought you would go CRAZY over the iPod Touch ad on our front door this week. But no! I got a bunch of emails like this one from Brendan: Gotta say.. I think the iPod Touch ad y'all are running is actually quite cool, with the navigation all spinning and twirling and doo-dad whatnot. Just wondering: Did CNET make it, or Apple? Either way, it's neato! Wow. Huh. I did not expect that. But I�m happy! Also, Apple made it. Of course. Next technical question, which was apparently happening a lot last week. OldNewThing says: The Balmer interview keeps asking for a flash upgrade, which i have. Chrome, IE, and FireFox all the same. Balmer = Fail. Yes. Ok. That apparently happened to a lot of people. In THAT case, the upgrade your flash message was happening because the requested video wasn�t found in our database. Basically, the video was accidentally promoted before it was published. We were REALLY excited. And we�ll fix the mistaken error message, which some of you are also seeing. Thanks for the heads up! Also, here�s a quick update on the CNET Conversations podcast situation. It�s been added to CNET TV under tech shows and for right now, if you want it as a podcast or RSS feed, go to CNET TV, choose it from the menu, and then click Subscribe. You can subscribe in iTunes or just paste the link into your RSS reader. More is coming. It�s � complicated. And now to your snail mail. First, the mystery of the glitter letter! I showed it a couple of weeks ago, but didn�t open it. Apologies to Grant, who, it turns out, hand-made this wonderful card with the CNET logo and slogan, and he lives in Malta, and this card says he�s seven. Years old. Grant? You�re pretty great at card-making. And thank you! Ok, a little lovermail. Jon says: I need to get this off my chest : Natali Del Conte and Mark Licea are simply the most adoreable cutie pies ever (in addition to being great CNET reporters). Seriously, they need to get married and make babies asap, imagine the results ! Hmmmm �. Moving on, Matt says: On CNET conversations with Steve Ballmore, Ina looked lovely! Please tell her! I loved her hair and blouse! And Pieter says: Just wanted to give Tom, Rafe and guest Carmine Gallo a thumbs up on their Real Deal episode about Steve Jobs. I really liked their analysis of the Apple distortion field. Good job guys! Thanks, everyone. All involved appreciate the compliments. And finally, a bit of crazymail from the Feedback box. I love this stuff. Eseku09 says: Hi,how u" doing i hope u"are fine Who do you think he really means? And cibercafeccsfabcid writes: please simplify let device as entrance for people to check time of arriving and leaving time to ............ money the budget of usage machine. Whoa. And finally, this one from Vikings, who says: I can wait I � feel scared. So on that note, that�s it for this week, everyone! Keep the 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.
