There's a Storm a-brewing!
>>[Background music] A jacket that keeps you warmer when you reverse it, a little big planet that we could all play in and the weather report a storm's a comin, Bonnie Cha in the house. What's up?
>>Bonnie Cha: What's up?
>>Brian Tong: All that and more on this week's Crave. [Background music] What's up, guys? Welcome to Crave, you are watching everything cool, quirky in tech on our crave blog at crave.cnet.com. We've got the boom sound effect. [Background noise] Thanks for dressin up today, you look really nice. A little saucy.
>>Bonnie Cha: Your producer told me that.
>>Brian Tong: I know and in fact our Producer, Arielle, [Assumed spelling] actually guessed what she was wearing. It is a dress from Anthropology. So next time you guys see Arielle on the show, you know where he shops.
>>Bonnie Cha: We're gonna go shopping at lunch. [Laughter]
>>Brian Tong: Alright, well there's a lot of things that have been announced this week but one thing in particular that's pretty cool and I guess I should throw it off to you.
>>Bonnie Cha: I will take it. It is the RIM Blackberry Storm. It's Blackberry's first touch screen Smartphone. But it's different than like the iPhone or anything because when you press the screen it actually like goes down like you get
>>Brian Tong: Oh, there are physical decompresses?
>>Bonnie Cha: Yea, it's like there's a suspension system underneath it.
>>Brian Tong: Woe
>>Bonnie Cha: So like you press down and it [Music]
>>Brian Tong: Speaking of storms we have a jacket that protects you in the weather [Inaudible] Check this out in popular science and it's called the reversible vitriol jacket and it's from North Face. The silver side reflects the light but also there's kind of like little air pockets in between the seams but when you reverse it and have the black side out, those pockets close up and then black absorbs the heat.
>>Bonnie Cha: So it's very versatile.
>>Brian Tong: Yea, it's like a chameleon. It's cool. I thought that jacket was pretty hot.
>>Bonnie Cha: Yea, that jacket is cool. Especially like in San Francisco the weather changes so fast.
>>Brian Tong: Yea and it's also $350 bucks.
>>Bonnie Cha: Oh
>>Brian Tong: [Music] Now another thing that I'm really stoked about is this new game called "Little Big Planet" and it's on the PS3. Did you watch some of the clips?
>>Bonnie Cha: I watched one clip.
>>Brian Tong: [Laughter] One clip? I told you to watch three.
>>Bonnie Cha: You said watch some and one is some, isn't it?
>>Brian Tong: Ok, well what'd you think about it?
>>Bonnie Cha: It looks cute.
>>Brian Tong: What makes it cute? Is it like
>>Bonnie Cha: The little character.
>>Brian Tong: Yea, he's a little sack boy voodoo doll.
>>Bonnie Cha: Yea
>>Brian Tong: And what really stands out about this game is that you can basically create your own levels and then also the cool thing is you can give them or publish these levels you make yourself so other people can play them.
>>Bonnie Cha: Sounds really so cool.
>>Brian Tong: Really so cool?. [Music] Ok, now we wanted to also address you guys who answered our Crave trivia. Last week we asked you who were the two characters fighting in Mortal Combat versus DC Universe. And the correct answer was Sub-Zero and Batman. So I'm gonna read through these names real fast. We have eight winners, Chris Hewes, Steven Tsai, a guy called DarthGoon, Amanda Elliot, Austin Z, Elliot Lee, Tami Thompson and John Harty. So thanks you guys so much for writing in and everyone for participating. And then we have another Crave trivia question for this week.
>>Bonnie Cha: Yes we do
>>Brian Tong: To give out more goods.
>>Bonnie Cha: Yes, so last week Brian sang a song, horribly.
>>Brian Tong: What?
>>[Laughter] During the Do not brave that again. What was the song and who was the composer?
>>Brian Tong: Ooh
>>Bonnie Cha: I'm gonna make you work.
>>Brian Tong: Wow, unlike mine that are really easy, Bonnie comes up with like a legit one. Now what's cool about this is we have a really cool variety pack, it's a power play pack from Griffin. You got things like a charger, USB cable, FM transmitter and a case for your MP3 player. We have three of em so send us in your answers at drivingmecravy@CNET.com. We're gonna randomly pull names and you could be a winner.
>>Bonnie Cha: Good prize.
>>Brian Tong: Yea. You know what time it is? It's time for [Background music] Do Not Crave. Halloween is just around the corner and we like to dress up but what about our pets? Well check this out, this Katamari Damacy costume on a dog. Now for those of you who may not know this is based off a charming Japanese video game where you're in an adhesive ball that rolls around and grabs anything it touches until it's big enough to be a star. Makes sense, right? Well, I found this costume at technobob.com and its damn creative but this is wrong. Like look at that poor thing. Now we're taking the dorky things that we like and forcing them on animals? Please do not dress up your pets like Master Chief, a Macro PC or Bonnie Cha or any other dorky tech things. All I gotta say [Background noise] Do Not Crave. [Music]
>>Bonnie Cha: You're calling me a dorky tech thing?
>>Brian Tong: Uh huh. [Laughter] You're kinda like an object.
>>Bonnie Cha: Ok
>>Brian Tong: A very sleek one at that, that's dressed very nicely. Ok, I'm gonna stop.
>>Bonnie Cha: You should.
>>Brian Tong: Alright, check out our blog at crave.cnet.com [Laughter]. We also want you guys to tell us things you crave. We'll throw your name upon the screen and talk about it and otherwise we'll see you guys next week.
>>Bonnie Cha: See you then.
>>Brian Tong: Alright
