This week in Crave: The heat dome edition

This week, we chilled out with stress apps, hit the water with a crazy jet pack, and gave a squat about a female urinal.

Too busy fainting from heatstroke this week to keep up with Crave? Here's what you missed while you were baking in the triple digits.

• If the heat dome is lifting your stress level along with the mercury, relaxing apps like Gravitarium2 and Tiny Riot might cool you down. Or drive you crazy.

• Speaking of apps, check out what CNET writers chose as their faves for Android in the CNET 100.

• "Avatar"-like graphics for the next Xbox ?

• Apple updates the MacBook Air and unveils a 27-inch Thunderbolt display , and Rich Brown checks out the latest Mac Mini .

• China, meanwhile, manages to fake entire Apple stores .

• In Japan, tsunami victims find comfort in a robot seal .

• Are women ready for a urinal revolution ?

• How your iPhone 4 sees guitar strings .

• If you really want to cool down, just strap on this jet pack and fly away--into the water.
