Loaded: Tech etiquette

Culture
>> Welcome to a special edition of Loaded. We're off for the holidays, but we still have a show for you. We have a great production team here in New York, but even the greatest mix of people can still get on one another's nerves. We often get in lengthy discussions about something we like to call "Gadget Etiquette." These are basic manners when it comes to respecting someone else's digital privacy. Now I won't say who the biggest offenders are in our office are, Wilson Tang. Nevertheless, we thought it would be funny to compile a list of our favorite gadget etiquette rules. Enjoy. ^M00:00:29 [ Music ] ^M00:00:32 >> Instant messaging keeps you connected with all your contacts. It's really hard to separate your work contacts from your personal contacts though. That being said, be respectful of others and don't hover over co-workers in their work space, read their e-mails, or instant messages over their shoulders -- not cool. Here's what I mean. ^M00:00:50 [ Keyboarding ] ^M00:00:54 >> Hey Sheila. >> Hey, what's up? >> How are you doing? >> I'm okay. >> Oh, you're talking to Rich? Hey, tell him I said, hi. >> Ah, okay. I- I'll... >> You know, I'll type in. >> No, that's -- I can type it myself. >> Okay. >> Um, do you need anything or what's up? >> No. It was a -- oh yeah, how was that video coming along? >> It's good. It's good, it's coming. >> Oh okay. >> Yeah. >> Okay. >> Do you have something to do, or...? >> No. >> No? >> Here is another one, picture etiquette. If there's one thing we can take away from the Internet, it's that the line between public and private is a thin one. Please think twice before you take and post pictures online. Be careful about drunken picture tagging on Facebook and MySpace. Post pictures as if your parents or your boss are viewing them because in most cases, they are. ^M00:01:43 [ Clicking ] ^M00:01:48 >> Another one on my tech pet peeves, gadget snooping. Remember when your teacher tells you to keep your eyes on your own paper? The same is true of electronics. Unless it's explicitly said by the rightful owner, it is not okay to go through a person's media device, whether it be an MP3 player, phone, digital camera or anything. Again at least a dozen in a week and if you're anything like Wilson Tang, well, see what I mean. >> Hey Mark, how is it goin'? >> Yo, what's goin' on? >> Is it -- how's it goin'? Hey, cool pictures. Why didn't you send me these pictures in the party? >> What, what pictures? >> Oh, dude, this is -- oh, hey, here you go man. I think I shouldn't look at that one. >> Thanks. >> Oh man, who is this chick? She is ridiculous. You got to be... >> Rude! >> Hey man, got those graphics? >> Yes. They are right here in the folder titled Graphics. >> Cool. >> Cool? >> Right, graphics. >> In the folder titled Graphics, okay? >> Alright, yeah. >> Alright. Alright. >> Alright. >> Alright. ^M00:02:54 [ Music ] ^M00:02:58 >> Now for music, specifically in iTunes. We all have our guilty pleasures when it comes to music. I know Mark Licea sometimes wants to murder me when I get on one of my show tunes kicks. Now, most people may not care, but those of us with frequent guilty pleasures like Beyonce or Celine Dion would like you to ask permission before doing any iTune snooping. ^M00:03:18 [ Beep ] ^M00:03:20 >> Finally, we should talk about hygiene. Not everyone is as neurotic about Purelle as I am. That's why I do not like lending my personal gadgets that I carry with me every day and press to the delicate skin on my face. Here's some of the ways in which this really gets under my skin. >> Can you take a look at this while I'll go and get some water. >> Yeah, sure. >> Great, cool. Thanks. ^M00:03:42 [ Sound effects ] ^M00:03:46 [ Sneezes ] ^M00:03:50 >> Oh, geez -- they're really in there. >> Yo. >> Oh, yeah. This is great, man, this is great. >> Thanks. >> Alright, take care, alright? >> Alright. ^M00:04:00 [ Sound effects ] ^M00:04:04 >> Wilson Tang. I'll talk to you soon. Hey, uhm, Ali, sorry about that. ^M00:04:14 [ Sound effects ] ^M00:04:17 >> Damn. ^M00:04:20 [ Rubbing ] ^M00:04:23 >> So gross. ^M00:04:25 [ Rubbing together ] ^M00:04:28 >> That does it for today. I hope you enjoyed our Gadget Etiquette Special. Surely, you are not an offender of any of these things, but if someone in your life is, you can discreetly forward them the link to this episode. All kidding aside, I hope you are enjoying your holiday. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET TV and you've just been Loaded. ^M00:04:45 [ Music ]
