As I'm commuting home yesterday afternoon, I fire up the old iPhone and decide to watch some video podcasts. After a little Geek Brief TV and Buzz Report, it's time for David Pogue. As host of my own vlog, The Queue, I often wonder if fellow vloggers ever watch my show. I wonder if Pogue, on his way into work, takes out his iPhone and checks out The Queue, or Top 5. I wonder if Kevin Pereira, at his G4 desk, quietly watches CNET Live.
Well, you can imagine my surprise, when exactly 52 seconds into Pogue's latest video, "Dave's Cutting-Room Floor," there's a quick clip of my New York colleague, John Falcone, doing a CNET First Look of the TiVo HD. It was the proof I'd been seeking all along! Others in the business are keeping a close eye on the competition! Even referencing them in THEIR videos!
And by the way, John Falcone seems to get the bulk of the attention around here. Go figure.
