Yeah, we know: You've got grown-up concerns like checking your 401(k) value, and getting advanced tickets to see Quantum of Solace this weekend.

So we understand you probably didn't keep up with Crave as religiously as usual this week. But no worries--we've got a quick roundup of what you missed.

• A $300 laptopbefore Black Friday?

• A Storm is a-brewin' starting November 21.

• WoW, those are some intricate, well-thought-out costumes.

• American Airlines says it's OK to use your phone as a boarding pass.

• Survey says: the BlackBerry has twice as many issues as the iPhone.

Have a great weekend! And if you see anything awesome we missed, be sure to write to us at crave dot cnet dot com.
