This week in Crave: The fixer-upper edition

This week, we caught a glimpse of Sony's new Walkmans, got in line early for the cat-video film festival, and begged Marissa Mayer to fix Flickr.

We start our look at the week past by extending heartfelt condolences to the victims of yesterday's horrendous Aurora, Colo., shooting, and to their loved ones. We know many of our readers have been looking forward to the opening of "The Dark Knight Rises" for weeks -- if not months -- and this senseless tragedy floats serious clouds over an event that should have been a pure geek joyfest.

This week, an Internet message to Yahoo's new CEO went viral. DearMarissaMayer.com
