Lovermail Edition II

Culture
Hello, everyone! I�m Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where you ask questions about CNET, complain about technical issues, sometimes send incoherent rants of some sort, and � sometimes you just love us. Like today, in our second-ever, Lovermail Edition. Let�s dive right in with Jon, who says: Eric Franklin's most recent video about the HP monitor was hilarious. The � ok, well, I don�t want to spoil it for you, so I�ll move on to Robert�s reaction. He said: In regards to the First Look on the HP w2558hc: Win. Yeah. Exactly. HP w2558hc. Watch it. Now. Moving on, Fred says: Bravo on BOL episode 1033 with Federal CTO Aneesh Chopra! It's great to see CNET has realized it has infinite time to dig into special topics. It seems like your counter-parts in broadcast think segments can only be six minutes because they need to get to the next story. No, the audience's attention span isn't that short. 30 minutes with a high government official who can make big changes in all our lives is time will spent. More, please! You got it. Next stop, Obama. Well, ok. But we�ll try to keep the high-profile guests coming. Next up, Grant�s got love for Tom � and he wasn�t alone. He said: I have to congratulate Tom Merrit and the video editor on the Hacks: Why AT&T blocked 4Chan video. It explained the situation very well and taught me quite a bit I didn't know about the net. Hope to see more of these expliantions in the future. Lots of love on that Hacks video. And I agree. Ok, here�s one for Cooley. Carrick says: I'd like to congratulate Brian Cooley on starring in the funniest CNet podcast that I've watched. His segment on the 2010 Volvo XC60 was hilarious! I could really feel his shear frustration throughout the entire podcast. I nearly fell over when he talked about the vehicle's smart key! Tell Brian to keep up the good laughs. For Brian Tong, Gregory has this: thank you for publishing a multitude of wonderful and useful tips for Mac users. I'd also like to thank Brian Tong for being as adept and knowledgeable of the Mac platform as he is. He puts on a wonderful show that is not only useful but is also highly entertaining. And then, for me, yay! Christian said � I just wanted to say that Mailbag 8/4/2009 doesn't have audio. Oh. That�s kind of all the mail I got this week � well, and mail about how last week�s Mailbag identified me as Tom Merritt. It�s cool, though. I know you love me. And actually, the � when we fixed the Tom Merritt thing we broke the audio and then the � it�s better now. ANYWAY, not everyone loves everything we do. Simmonsdd writes in outrage to say: In re the buzz report promo IN MY PODCAST FEED! Hey Molly, Believe it or not I'm a huge fan. but... Perhaps you could explain the wisdom of putting a commercial, whose sole purpose is to get me to subscribe to your podcast, in my podcast feed? If this were you website - acceptable use, but duh? Allow me to explain. See, if I get the podcast, that means I'm already subscribed. if the purpose is to get me to watch it, well if I saw your promo, hmmm, aren't I already watching it? This is so old media stupid it makes me want to scream. Stop abusing the privilege I give you of my bandwidth usage for pushing useless stupid crap! Yeah. Accident. See, we published these little promo videos that we made for our sales team, and since we put them up on CNET TV and they were categorized to the specific shows, they ended up in the podcast feed. We�re sorry. We�re working really hard to make sure you don�t get ads for the show you�re watching and all that. In this case, our system is just too smart for its own good. And finally � no auto-incorrect, but a tiny bit of crazymail. Lindy says: Could you please ask Andy Rooney if I can have his "Joe's Stone Crab" vouchers if he isn't going to use them? This is my favorite food and I would use up every cent and appreciate every single morsel!! That�s, uh � well. See. They don�t actually let me talk to Andy Rooney. But if I see him around � I�ll try. And 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.
