Hey, look Ma -- I'm on TV! (Er, streaming TV, anyway)

The global economic crisis, the safe return of two U.S. journalists held captive in North Korea, Leonardo's new girlfriend ... borrrring! What the world really needed to know were my picks for the best 25 back-to-school gadgets, and a breathless planet got its wish during my five-minute segment Wednesday on CNN.com.

Was I a little nervous for my first-ever TV interview, even if it was only to be broadcast over the Web? Well, yeah, actually. Luckily, I did the piece from an empty studio at Time Warner Center, totally alone except for a desk, a funky NYC-themed backdrop, an earpiece, and a big video camera pointed at my head. In the end, it was a lot like doing a radio interview (especially once the studio monitor was turned off), but hey -- next time I'll be ready for you, Wolf.

And on Yahoo! Tech this week: Twitter falls victim to a massive denial of service attack; Sony's new "Party-shot" camera dock automatically snaps photos of everyone in the room, whether you like it or not; RadioShack becomes "The Shack"; new Nikon camera packs in a tiny projector; and Google's Eric Schmidt steps down from Apple's board, surprising no one.

Digg!
