On this week's Crave, we hug our diamond-covered smartphone, dig in the dirt for old E.T. game cartridges, and look to the skies for a pizza delivered by DomiCopter.

Crave has compiled a list of some of the most ridiculously opulent smartphones and tablets from around the world -- and surprisingly, they do a lot less than a cheap Android phone. Plus, a plush toy and app combo that turns your phone all cuddly. And a warp-speed look at Windows updates from Windows 1 to Windows 8.
