What we Craved this week: Blu-ray, e-book news, ancient video games

Our favorite stuff from Crave this week includes news about an e-reader from Samsung and a look at console games of yore that deserve a second life.

Samsung's new e-book reader, the SNE-50K Samsung Electronics

This week has been a hot one here in Seattle and a fun one at Crave. We've covered Blu-ray players that cost more than laptops as well as cheap laptops with Blu-ray players included. We don't have any idea what's going on either.

There have been a few interesting developments in the e-book reader department with Samsung announcing it's joining the fray and Barnes and Noble re-entering the e-book market.

Technically speaking, the iPhone is a popular e-book reader, but it still has its flaws. Case in point, a vulnerability in iPhone software could allow hackers to take control of the device via a text message. Thankfully there's a patch out now.

And Dan Ackerman looks back at some of the console games of yore he thinks deserve another shot as downloadable content. I agree with him on these choices completely.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
