This week in Crave: The super-spooky edition

We got scared this week by sexy nerd Halloween costumes that fail and laptop systems with fatal flaws. But that's not all that went down.

Too busy trying to pick out a sexy nerd Halloween costume that passes Matt Hickey's muster to keep up with Crave this week? Here's what you missed while you were ruling out a sexed-up Optimus Prime, Captain America, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

• Speaking of All Hallow's Eve, mark the holiday by playing terrifying games --and avoiding scary laptop systems .

Some laptop systems just plain scare us.

• The Nook got colorful .

• Donald Bell unwrapped the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

• It's Android for the upcoming JooJoo.

• Will this device be a PSP 2? And other PSP Phone questions .

• This robot kills wasps--while sporting a mohawk, of course.

• Forget the toys, kids want iProducts for the holidays.

• Make "Tron" the first thing you think of when you wake up...

• Note to Hollywood: Multiple monitors do not a supercomputer make (and other tired movie-tech cliches ).

Got a great story for us? Send those non-cliched tips to us at crave at cnet dot com. Also, boo!
