Hello, everyone! I�m Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where I get air mail! I love air mail! Thank you to those who sent me postcards recently, like this one from Taiwan, this one from Portugal, and this one from Aberdeen, UK, which included some Designed for Windows XP stickers. Thank you. Douglas, a happy belated birthday to your friend Neil, but dude? We don�t sing. Moving on to electronic mail, Chris writes in with a content request. He says: I was wondering, is there any possibility of a news show that would be posted every morning that i could download to my iPod and listen to on the way to school? I've always been a big fan of Loaded, (LOVE NATALIE!), but its always posted later in the day. I do subscribe to Buzz Out Loud and I love it, but they're almost 40 minutes! Something short would be ideal. Chris! You need to fall in love with the CNET News Daily Podcast. It�s about 10 minutes, it�s daily, like the name says, and it�s great! Get it at iTunes or podcast.cnet.com. Speaking of podcasts, Thomas has a new favorite. He says: I had to take the time out of my busy college schedule to tell you how much I enjoyed the recent Real Deal episode on DSLRs, and they had a guest which made some things quite clear to me. In case you don�t know, the Real Deal is a show Tom Merritt and Rafe Needleman put on each week where they basically give you the nuts and bolts of a tech topic. It�s really helpful � at least to Thomas. Check it out. Ok, now to more of the CNET fan request line. Anthony says: I feel that Linux (Ubuntu, since it is the most popular distribution) is largely forgotten on cnet. PLEASE, and im begging here, include this email in your next mailbag as well as adding more ubuntu info, tips and tricks, or ANYTHING of the sort to cnet. Anthony, you got it. This is a personal mission for Tom Merritt, and we�ve gotten a lot of requests for this lately, so we�ll keep on it. Speaking of neglected topics, Guillermo says: i've noticed that you've forgotten the android community a little bit. I know that is a new operating system and all, but i know that it is increasing exponentially and it may interest even more people if you talk about it. I may also tell you that i live in the Dominican Republic and i might be the only one with the G1(unlocked-Orange) here, since the fad is iphone everywhere. A fair point. We haven�t done too many videos about Android, since there aren�t many products available yet, and there are only so many how-to tips you can do on one phone. But there�s a lot of review and blog coverage here at CNET, and we�re breathlessly awaiting the next Android phone. Also, though � are you SURE it�s increasing exponentially � since you�re the only one you know who has one? Just asking. Ok, let�s switch to some quick hater mail. Rcavanagh says: I love the AppleBytes podcast with Brian Tong so I thought I'd try the Buzz Report podcast that was recommended at the end of the podcast. I tried it and have one big suggestion. Get a new host. Molly Wood bored me to tears within 2 minutes. I tried watching 3 other episodes of the podcast and again came to the conclusion that you need a new host. I promptly unsubscribed. Hm. Maybe watch � like 3 more? Nah. I�m an acquired taste. I can live with that. And to sdcatchmehere, who wrote and said: i want live cricket match I got nothing for ya, buddy. And that�s it for today�s show! Keep the feedback coming! Email me at Mailbag@cnet.com, or send your snail mail to 235 2nd St., San Francisco, CA, 94105. Thanks for watching, everyone.
