Mailbag: Best Sprint phone for texting Video Transcript
Hey, everyone, I'm Molly Wood, and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where we take your feedback about the stuff we do here at CNET. And we've got a big backlog of your email, so let's jump right in! Well, actually, let's jump in with postcards. Thanks to Wilson for sending this cute kitty postcard all the way from Singapore with a nice letter to boot! And Douglas sent us more airpostcardmail from Scotland to say: Can you ask Brian Cooley what BMW stands for? Because no one in the UK knows what is stands for. BREAKING NEWS EVERYONE: THE UK HAS LOST ACCESS TO GOOGLE! Also, though, really? I don't need to ask Brian Cooley this one. For one thing, I know. Everybody knows. Sarah, you know? Charlie, you know? Bavarian Motor Works, dude. Tangent alert! There is actually quite a running controversy about whether the blue and white BMW logo actually represents a spinning propeller in honor of the company's World War I military engine maker, or whether, as a BMW spokesman has said, it simply represents the colors of the Bavarian national flag. Trivia! Ok, moving on to some product advice. Frequent watcher Jake from South Carolina wrote to say: Hey Molly, I love mailbag! I just had a little ? for you. If you had sprint which phone would you say has the best keyboard for a texter. Well, Jake, I went to CNET cell phone editors Kent German and Bonnie Cha, and they suggested the LG Rumor, or, if you're looking for a smartphone, maybe the Sprint Mogul or the Samsung Ace. Go try 'em out! Next up, some feedback about Today in Tech History! Jacob wrote: I am dissapointed in cnet because June 29th was the first day the iPhone went on sale. That is Apple's most revolutionary product. Next year try to include it. Sent from my iPhone I figured. But yep, wow, I totally biffed it! My fault, Jacob. I will include it next year ... keep watching! In other TITH questions, Bill from Portland asked: Who is the poor sole who has to go into CNET on weekends to post Today in tech history? Well, Bill, this is the poor sole. It's my producer and editor, Sarah! She's in here FLOUNDERING all weekend to turn today in tech history into a HALIBUT show! Ok, sorry. Actually, she edits a whole weekends' worth on Fridays. We got a couple of emails for Brian Tong this week. First, jessegloria asked: Can Brian Tong due a presentation(pros and cons) between gmail vs. .mac(mobile me)..... What's better. Paying $99.00 or getting it for free through gmail.... please help Jessegloria, that's a good idea! Brian put it in his Prizefight piggybank for when the Mobile Me service launches, so keep an eye out in the next month or so! Ah, viewers getting what they want via feedback. It's a beautiful thing. Also re. Brian, Kyle wrote in to say: After watching reviews and reports on CNET for quite some time now i have thought of a new blog that could be an excellent edition to the CNET team. It will be based entirely on Brian Tongs wicked shirts. Every review or report he is in, he has a new crazy shirt on (especially the window blinds shirt from this weeks crave. Brian, awesome shirt - please let me know where you got that, I foresee many hours of fun with that shirt...) I know his shirts are awesome but ... what would you do with the blinds one? Cut a hole and stick your eyes through there? Keep it moving. sen-dog said: dear mailbag, its insane in the membrane that mailbag is now every other week. its the 1 show that requires no tech knowledge to enjoy. it allows molly freedom to act the fool.. ... and then he said some more stuff, but he ended with this: a week without it is like a recepie by paula deen that doesnt start /w 4 stick of butter And dude! Can we TALK about Paula Deen's recipes!? That woman should be arrested for attempted murder! All her recipes are like a shot right to the heart! That show needs a warning label! AAAAANYWAY. Also we got emails from two people who said they had started Facebook groups to save mailbag every week. Maybe you guys should find each other andf then you would get more people into your groups. Suzie wants to know: Does Bonnie Cha have a pierced nose? Yep. And finally, let's end with what MIGHT be a recurring segment here at the Mailbag: you and your crazy dreams. Jono said: Just thought I'd tell you that a couple of nights ago I had a dream. And it was weird. Here's how it goes: You and Tom were in my backyard recording an episode of BOL. When you finished that you did a product review of a dead guinea pig (yes, those furry hamster things). Then it came back to life and my mother walked in and said, "It doesn't usually do that". Then we had a barbecued sausages for lunch. WTF!!!!!!! Wow. Also: mmm. Sausages. And that's it for this week, everyone. Keep that feedback coming, and tell your friends to watch!
