Mailbag: Crazy-mail special3:54 /
This week on Mailbag, we're throwing out the podcast feed questions and helpful advice, and just reading the crazy mail. It's epic.
Hello, everyone! I�m Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where I give up on trying to answer serious questions because the CRAZY MAIL just keeps pouring in! This week, I�m dedicating the show to the most hilarious, most baffling, and most fantastic email I�ve gotten in the past week. Let�s start � with fanboy mail. Sometimes, I just get random declarations of love for unexpected things. Like, lkstojcic, who writes: The Chevy Volt's gonna own up all those stupid hybrids from Toyota and Honda, (Sneer). GM FTW!!!!!!!!!! That�s a proud American, right there. And this one from anonymous, who just says: MICROSOFT IS THE BEST Kind of feel like a robot wrote that. A lot of your crazy mail comes in as � requests. Requests I can never, ever fulfill. jklb29, for example, writes: I WANT TACO Vonr2 says: please, please more of the remarkable dwight yoakam And sauqijacob reports: wanna know the sample.ok Actually, I can�t tell if that�s a request or an offer. Maybe � ok � IS the sample. The next category of crazymail we get is the tech support questions. Now, our engineers and the CNET TV product manager monitor the feedback, and try to get back to people who are having problems. But sometimes, they fix themselves! Like when ceejay22 emailed and said: your cnet tv wont come on,all the info comes on the side but no video! And then a few minutes later, we got this: Hi.. just called back to let you know I was downloading from the web and that was the problem,sorry about that... Glad it worked out. Or, Andrew, who sent these three messages in quick succession. First: What about the speed . How fast can it go ? does it need 2 or 1 Gb of ram ? or can it use 512 mb of ram Then: How much is it going to cost? And finally: When is it go to be comming out? to buy WHAT, dude? WHAT!? And finally, my favorite category of all � the mysterious missives from abroad. I swear, I am NOT making fun of your English, only the fact that you sent these particular emails � to me. Here. At CNET TV. Like, Augustina from Argentina, who writes: hello, sorry but i'm looking for someone who calls konstantin isaac, from germany, actually he's russian. the thing is that i'm looking him by anyplace on earth, and i found this site, but i don't know if he is part of it or what, so, if he will. let me know, if not, let me know it too. 'cause i don't know how keep with my search. thanx And this one from joao � I�ll do the best I can: hallo guys I'm a old man.I have 58 yars old.I love hitec , my life are citing infrent off the video at 15 yars ago ,and all the world came on my brain thruogh this videos.I'm so happy ,I'm free , I'm not alone , my girlfriend lieve in RUSSIA., we make sex, we learn english to andarstand us. But in other room im my house my pather are daieding.just going out. without video .he love the silence that just he feeling and no one video can tell you nothing because he leaven day by day on the dark and the silence WHAT!?
