A sneak peek into Engadget’s crib

I filmed a fun segment for the ScobleShow (won’t be up until at least October 11th cause of a “frieNDA”) with Ryan Block at his house last night. He’s been writing for Engadget for, it seems, ever. Anyway, that dude is one serious gadget freak. I’m jealous. Although my HDTV is bigger (and I think sharper) than his. Neener neener neener!

Dude had something like six Xbox 360s sitting on the floor (Engadget is giving them away in a contest).

His girlfriend, Veronica Belmont, I learned, is on CNET TV. She gave me a tour of their new interface. Very cool. One thing that I didn’t like about the new UI is I can’t figure out how to link to a specific video. Not good. It’s why I like a simpler, less “cool” interface that makes it easier to link to specific video posts (Veronica has a good one on how to videoblog, for instance, but I can’t share it with you cause I can’t figure out how to link just to that video. Sigh).

  1. Oh, there is a “hack” of sorts to get a video link on CNET TV – just email the video to yourself! It’ll give you a direct URL to the video.

    Eddie: No, he didn’t see me playing WoW. But I did show Robert my WoW theme on my i-Mate K-Jam!

  3. Veronica: don’t worry, our site has lots of bugs too. Hell, my RSS feeds didn’t work when I opened up (and I’m the guy who said you should be fired if you don’t have RSS feeds).

    Anyway, I’d love to have you on the show! Maybe I can come over and get a tour around CNET with you.

  5. I didn’t get to show you MY gadgets! Well, other than the Nabaztag. Yeah, don’t worry, we’ve got good stuff in the works for CNET TV. I know everyone uses “beta” as a scapegoat… but yeah… beta.

  7. Ha! Actually I don’t own an HDTV, they’re loaners and giveaways! So you REALLY got me there. ;) I def think V knows about the video linking issue though, that’s the very first thing I whined to her about when they launched the beta a couple months ago!
