What we craved this week

Is it time for my infamous Powernog yet? It's the weekend, after all.

This is me being stoked for the holidays. Matt Hickey

As is the tendency at year's end, this week Crave has seen several "best of" lists, including the 10 best cell phones of the year. Not to be single-minded, we also put out the 10 worst cell phones of the year . But it's not just phones, we listed the 20 most notable tech products of the year, period.

We also shared a collection of last-minute gifts you can print . If you have a printer, you now have stocking stuffers. Getting a new HDTV for Christmas? We're here to help .

Did you hear about the wicked giant new airplane that flew for the first time here in my city? It was pretty awesome .

But it's not all gifts and end-of-year fun. We learned that Apple is trying to patent reality. No, really .

Speaking of ballsy moves, we sort of have to mention Google's Nexus One phone here, don't we?

And feel free to gift us, your humble bloggers, with something from our wish lists . I'll take the MacBook Pro repair service, thanks.
