This week in Crave: The geek chic edition

This week, a computer may have caught us faking a smile, but excavating our childhood "Star Trek" memorabilia and finding a way to experience the Samsung Galaxy S III on an S II gave us lots to be happy about.

Too busy planning for Geek Pride Day to keep up with Crave this week? Well, take your eyes off the circuit boards and computer code on your Geek Sneaks for a moment and catch up on what you missed.
