Fresh from CES 2012, Eric, Donald, and Bonnie wrap up all the best CES tech they missed during their week in Vegas. On deck is a touch-screen window, an R2-worthy 3D projector, Kinect-controlled skateboards, toilet tech, zombie tech, and of course, Geek News.
For our last Crave of 2011, Bonnie and Donald revisit the '80s with a retro Walkman case, bad Apple fashions, and a look at Crave photo submissions that have been Instagrammed into blurry, oversaturated works of art.
And whether it's by ground or by sea, Crave has the latest high-tech methods for risking your life in pursuit of fun. In Geek News, Lego goes LOTR, and Batman goes Lego.

Little Printer puts the Internet back onto paper, while invoked computing concepts put the Internet inside a pizza box. Eric and Donald meet up with the Keepon Pro, and Neil deGrasse Tyson predicts the end of the West Coast.
We ask the crew what they bought on Black Friday, and then browse a selection of Cyber Monday/Cyber Week deals on laptops and TVs, suggesting which ones to avoid, no matter the price.
Tablets are done. The future is tables. Unfortunately, it's the same future where giant teddy bears punch you in your sleep and adorable pugs are transformed into bloodthirsty monsters.
