Mailbag: Give us our CNET stickers!

Culture
Hey, everyone, I'm Molly Wood, and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where we take your feedback and answer your questions about the stuff we're doing here at CNET. And first, I want to address an ongoing burning question. Chris echoes so, so many of you when he says: Today I got up around 6am to go wait in line at a walmart for a $300 Compaq laptop, I got it and by far it is the best computer I have ever had...the only problem is that the cover has the weird Compaq logo on it so I was wondering if there was anyway that I could get one of those Cnet stickers that you have on your laptop to cover it up. Dudes? I KNOW. I know you want the stickers, and I totally understand, and I ask about the stickers nonstop and I never get anywhere! Part of the problem is that we changed our logo, so we don?t have any of these stickers anymore. And then, whatever schwag we?re getting with the new logo on it isn?t stickers! I don?t know why! But I walk by the marketing lady in charge of schwag almost every day, so I?ll keep telling her. Also, though, I gotta say, they?re not all they?re cracked up to be. Like, I can?t get this one off. It?s on here forever. It?s not even my computer. Ok, moving on, Grant writes in from New Zealand to say: Gidday Molly, We sit down on the couch every Thursday & Friday in our lunch break to watch CNET TV on our TV and get pissed off having to get off our arses to walk to the computer to click the RESUME button. What's the story with this ???. We are not the most energetic at the best of times & can really do with out this major exercise of having to walk 10 feet to the computer & back to the couch three times. Grant ? are you talking about yourself in the third person? Anyway, yeah, that?s based on advertiser tracking ? basically, they want to know that someone?s actually watching CNET TV instead of turning it on and walking away. I agree it?s a monster pain in the buttinsky, but there?s absolutely nothing I can do to get it changed. I?m super sorry. May I recommend, perhaps, a wireless keyboard? I?m glad you?re watching! Sharp-eyed Matthew writes: Molly, did you notice that your show now has a the old beginning back again? I just thought you should know because Ya! the postman is back at the beginning again! No offence to the Cnet logo. Yep, he?s back, and yes. I noticed. It?s kinda ? my show. I keep an eye on it. But yes, we heard your complaints and we brought back the mailman, at least for now. Yay! Next up, Paul has a question about our videos: WOW! What the heck just happened!!! The new guy "Matt Elliot" said Asusl like Asooooos, on his review of the AsusX83VB-X1. Has some guy from Asus said thats the correct pronunciation or was he just like a little camerafrantic? Actually, that?s how you pronounce it. Well, hardly anyone says that, but it?s the right way. Here?s some proof: I definitely think precious shimmering fiber would be a great band name. Brandon had some thoughts on the gender-identification of laptops: In regard to Emily's email where you said all laptops are Males, I beg to differ. Lets take my laptop for example. It has the female ends of the usb ports, female HDMI port, female VGA port, female SD slot, female pci slot, and a female end of a power connection. I must say that I thought it was a common agreement that laptops, or computers in general, are female. Also, in spanish computer is spelled computadora, take note of the A at the end of the word. That means that the object is feminine. When it comes down to it though, Emily is right, Dan Ackerman is an egocentric sexist pig (just kidding) and we demand an apology on his next review! Wow! Brandon! We stand corrected. I WILL demand an apology! Maybe. And finally, Marcus from Brussels Belgium sent us this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WEFeSeNuGg And he asks: is it really Brian Tong? And if it is, who should I contact to make sure he stops? thank you Well, Marcus, it?s not OUR Brian Tong, but THAT Brian Tong could probably kick your ass, so maybe you don?t want to make fun of his kung-fu moves. Just sayin. AND that'll do it for this week, everyone. Keep that feedback coming! Mailbag@cnet.com, or send me a postcard. 235 2nd St., San Francisco, CA, 94105. See you next week!
