CNET TV iPhone hacks

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Hello everyone, I'm Molly Wood. Welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where you get your chance to tell us what you think of our shows, our services, our wardrobes, that kind of thing. Let's begin with the ongoing drama of CNET TV on the iPhone. Matthew said, "Is there chance you can add the Today on CNET TV playlist and also new shows like 'How To', 'Hacks', Buying Guide' and the 'Green Show' to the iphone.cnet.com web app? I do not have access to the tv.com app because I am outside the U.S. Thanks." And yeah after our show two weeks ago, a lot of you wrote in to remind me that the TV.com app doesn't work outside the U.S. and yeah I agree, that sucks a bunch; and I can only get our CNET TV product manager to commit to we're looking into a CNET TV-only iPhone app. But Ben has a possible workaround. He says point the iPhone Safari at cnet.com and you'll be redirected to iphone.cnet.com, a made-for-iPhone version of CNET complete with a CNET TV tab. If you want cute little CNET red ball on your iPhone menu screen, just hit the plus button at the bottom of the screen and select "Save to Home Screen" and you've got a ready-made iPhone interface to CNET that feels just like an app without needing to go to TV.com's app. Thank you Ben and then yes of course not all of the videos are available there but it's a start. All right now let's get to this week's The Burning Question. Actually, I wish I could say it's just this week. Darryl and so, so many others wrote to say, "I stop by your site daily; I still don't understand why 'The Chicago Cop' beat woman is still on your page after so many comments have been made about it being there. Please do something to remove it." Yeah tell me about it. Here's the bugzilla thread that shows how long we've been trying to get this fixed. It was not our normal engineering department--let me just say that. But God's willing it is fixed now and it won't come back. Back end catalog integration is hard work. Okay and now for a little personnel feedback. As you know I was on vacation last week and Brian Cooley took over The Buzz Report. Mark said, "Molly, Good God, I just got down watching The Buzz Report with Brian Cooley filling in for you, two words--train wreck, seriously, never again. No, seriously." Ouch. Luckily Mark was in the extreme minority at Psych 4 was more representative, he said, "Thought I'd send a note to say how much I enjoyed Brian Cooley's Buzz Report. I thought it was soooooooooo much more fun and hilarious than the standard show. While the Molly humor is good, nothing beats Cooley when he's on a roll and boy was he ever. Is there any likelihood of Cooley doing more Buzz Reports in future? Would LUV to see that. L-U-V and so on and so on. I thought he was great but I don't know about replacing me. Fill in. And speaking of lover mail, here's a gratuitous shout out from Brad 1Psych 4 was more representative, he said, "Thought I'd send a note to say how much I enjoyed Brian Cooley's Buzz Report. I thought it was soooooooooo much more fun and hilarious than the standard show. While the Molly humor is good, nothing beats Cooley when he's on a roll and boy was he ever.

And speaking of lover mail, here's a gratuitous shout out from Brad 1,2,3,4,5,6 really Brad 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 that's your e-mail handle? OK fine. Brad says, "More Eric Franklin. His videos rock. Yes they do. And finally let's wrap up with auto incorrect. Steven writes in with a tail of auto incorrect spookiness. He says, "I had really liked this girl at my workplace but I had a gut feeling that she was leading me on. I won't say her name in case this does appear on Mailbag but I will say that every time I typed her name into Blackberry Messenger, the auto correct would change her name to Noose. Yep, it was a sign. She had a boyfriend the entire time. She was just messing with me for attention." Ooh auto correct knows all. And that's it for this week everyone. Keep the feedback impressions coming. E-mail me at mailbag@cnet.com or send your snail mail to 235 Second Street, San Francisco, California 94105 and thank you for watching.
