My Two Minutes and 30 Seconds of Fame

Thursday, March 13, 2008

They put my question on the podcast.

OMG, I'm never going to wash my computer again.

So, I've been on this cellphone kick for months now, researching not only phones, but service providers, plans, and the industry at large. I'm fascinated. And there's no better source for news, reviews, and commentary about the mobile phone industry than CNET, with its sturdy stable of experts Kent German, Bonnie Cha, and Nicole Lee. Seriously, watching Bonnie review the Nokia N95 almost warrants one of those family filters on my computer; it's dizzying.

A few weeks ago I started listening to their podcast. It's pure nerd candy, and it drives the wife nuts. I gleefully crossed that line between consumer and cook last week, when I actually emailed the podcast a question.

Today, the gods of cellphonia answered. Click this link and skip ahead to the 27:28 (roughly 3/4 of the way through) mark to hear it.

Here's the blurb from the podcast's shownotes:
Rocky from Pomona, CA wants to decide between a standalone point and shoot camera or a good-quality camera phone like the Nokia N91. However, it is very expensive, and Kent and Bonnie suggest to go with a cheap and portable point and shoot over an expensive camera phone.
Stop judging me!
