Where you all need to chill a littleMolly keeps it real with the complainers in this week's Mailbag, but it all ends on a happy note.
Hello, everyone! I�m Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show that�s brought to you on the Internet for free, like all the other shows and content we deliver, because we are very occasionally able to sell advertisements to companies who would like to reach you with their marketing messages. And we haven�t been able to sell quite as many ads as we�d like as of late because maybe you�ve heard of a little thing called a global recession, and it�s made us all a little bit worried about our JOBS, but every so often we DO manage to sell some ads and continue to deliver FREE content that WE think is high-quality to YOU, so if you could maybe EASE UP on the bitching about the ads just a TINY bit, I think we would all be grateful, ok? Just � check Facebook while they�re on or something. It�s not going to kill you. Oh, and as long as you�re hating on us, Ethan says: When is there going to be a better cnet blog for kindle? Their all STUPID. Please create a new one. Maybe about new tech products? Ethan Oh, a smiley face. How nice. Actually, I didn�t know we even had Kindle blogs. But now I do. Which means I can see how they got there and how we might be able to get more up there that you don�t think are so stupid. Ok. Moving on. Bill emails in about some of the other things that make our jobs hard sometimes. He says: Who�s the comedian who made Dong Ngo say �Netgear WNDR3700 Rangemax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router�? You people are vicious. I think the really vicious ones are the folks over at Netgear, Bill. And I agree. And good job, Dong. Ok, let�s do a little lovermail, shall we? Justin from Irvine writes: Hey Molly, I wanted to send a quick thank you to Jason Howell for his excellent work exposing me to the various cnet podcasts. Podcast Central is very well put together--I can navigate between different shows with easy and find exactly what I want whether audio, video, or HD. I know from conversations on BOL that he's constantly working to make my experience with cnet shows better, and he is doing a noteworthy job. So thank you Jason, for your hard work. I agree, Justin, and Jason worked long and hard to coordinate that blog redesign, and our design team made it look good. And Jason is indeed constantly working to make things better � so, for all the people who said: Molly, How do I subscribe to a RSS feed for CNET Conversations? I can't find it at podcast.cnet.com. Yes. I know. He�s working on it, and it will be available as a podcast soon. Hope you caught our latest episode, where Ina Fried and I interviewed Steve Ballmer! You can, in case you�re able to visit Websites, find it at cnet.com/conversations. And finally, a lovermail three-fer, just because I feel like it, and I appreciated it. Leonard says: I've been a loyal watcher of your cnet tv show during my lunch hours for the past year or so. I really enjoy all of your programs, however today, especially so. The three reports that got me to write this are todays (9/23/09) Buzz Report, How to, and Loaded. I genuinely appreciate Molly's honesty with her displeasure (and pleasure, in other cases) at the telcoms, I second that emotion!!! Today's How to also was especially beneficial as I've always been frustrated with fm transmitters and will now be installing a modulator for my sisters truck. And last, but not least, the Buzz Report is always engaging and entertaining and I liked hearing about Google's further intrusion into the internet. As a stock holder, I appreciate them growing, but that ones a little scary! I�m pretty sure he meant Loaded in that last line. So, thank you, Leonard. I appreciate it. A lot. And I hope the ads didn�t drive you crazy. Also, to Ian in the UK, who set me the camera script for a top Gear episode!? HOLY CRAP. Thank you. 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.
