Natali Del Conte Archive
Natali Del Conte from CNET appeared on Fox and Friends this morning to discuss the Wii and a few other gadgets (Dash GPS and iPhone apps). The Wii discussion was the focus and during the discussion, the host asked Natali how to find a Wii game system. She explained that you could use “rss” and trackers to have availability sent directly to you daily.
Next she went on to explain something that should never be discussed in public. Natali noted, “The way I did it, you know it’s not the most honest thing but if you buy the package and then I returned the games I didn’t want.” Below is the video of her appearance and the rip off segment appears at about the 1:30 mark.
Now Natali, you are here in NYC long enough. You should know that if you go to 101st and Amsterdam, see a guy named Willy, he will hook you up with plastic, a shrink wrap machine, electronic devices for each merchant and pricing stickers. He also sells kits for The Gap and Banana Republic. This makes life easier :)
Video blogger Natali Del Conte is moving to the big apple from San Francisco (the other tech city!) for a gig with CNET – I’d like to personally welcome her (along with all of the great CN readers) to the big apple! You may have seen Natali on her tech daily news show Textra and her fortnight stint on TechCrunch. Natali has really improved her game she her first days doing video blogging – you can read my review of her show on my video host smackdown.
In a blog post, Natali notes some of the things that she will miss about San Francisco and I thought I’d give some suggestions for replacements here in NYC:
|Natali will miss||Allen’s suggestions|
|The Golden Gate Bridge||We’ve got way more bridges here and the Brooklyn Bridge seems to be a favorite|
|Mexican food||Oh we have Mexican food here – along with every other possible type of food imaginable including the best pizza in the world|
|Being so close to my family||Virgin America can zip you back and forth whenever you like|
|Specialty’s cookies||No idea what this is but we have Zaro’s B&W’s along with the best bakeries in the world|
|Having a car, although not necessarily my car||We have Zipcar|
|Running to the Hoppers’ Hands||No idea what a Hoppers’ Hands is but you can run in the greatest park in the world here|
|Long walks with my book club girls||Bring them too!|
|Ambiance||We have ambulances here too though the cabbies won’t move out of the way for them so people die|
|Froyo||No idea what a Froyo is but we have snow!
Update: Tamar says I am lame for not knowing that Froyo = Frozen Yogurt.
|My supper club||We have dinner clubs|
Here are some other things that are different here:
- SF has BART, we have a real subway
- SF has pizza, we have real pizza
- SF has a tech blogger, you have to put up with me (though everyone says I am WAY sexier)
- SF wishes they had bagels, we have the best – I like H&H, Fred Wilson prefers Murray’s
- SF has great air and weather, ok you got me there
- SF has a MOMA, we have THE MOMA
- We’ve got free WiFi
- Oh yea, and our companies have business plans
Welcome to NYC Natali, you are going to love it here! For those of you who haven’t watched a Natali video show, I’ve embedded one below.
