This week in Crave: The up-in-Flame edition

This week, we followed the progress of the Olympic Flame through Flickr photos and saw right through a transparent smartphone screen. Also, we surveyed the political leanings of America's Wi-Fi routers.

Too busy watching the Olympic Flame wend through such Britishly named towns as Stoke on Trent and Shrewsbury to keep up with Crave this week? Well, take your eyes off Trowbridge for a moment and catch up on what you missed.
