Mobile World Oops
A great CNET tradition at the end of the calendar year and big technology trade shows like Mobile World Congress is the CNET TV blooper reel. Flubbed lines, accidental swearing, and breaks in concentration are bound to happen. And really, after so many long hours walking a show floor, so few hours of sleep, and so much dodgy press room food, exhaustion and general mental fuzziness are bound to set in. But we're not complaining in the least, as it's all part of the fun. And the results are hilarious.
Though every CNET editor on the blooper reel gave us a good show, my personal favorites are Rich Trenholm delivering a dramatic reading, Luke Westaway using "shan't" in a sentence, and Seamus Byrne trying to keep Alcatel's many, many phones straight while filming in what could be Spain's (or as Eric Franklin says, "Splain") strangest hotel room. Of course, I have to give a shout-out to Marc Ganley, Richard Peterson, and Sarah Harbin, our CNET TV crew, who kept the cameras rolling.
