Welcome to Crave, where cool and technology intersect in our space age groovy looking set. Now I'm Brian Tong, and I'm joined here with Miss Jasmine France, our hostess with the mostess. And Jasmine, can you tell everyone what you do here at CNET? >> I can. I'm a senior associate editor for MP3 and digital audio, so I get to review MP3 players and headphones, and all sorts of cool stuff like that. >> Okay, so what we're gonna do is just talk about some cool gadgets, some of the stuff that we've seen on the Crave blog. And you guys can find that at crave.cnet.com. So Jasmine, what did you bring today? >> The first thing I have are these Zoco [assumed spelling] Audio earphones. And these are a total trip. Like I just started using them, and they actually make your ears vibrate. >> So like your, your little earlobes is like shaking? >> It's crazy how strong it feels. Like I was sitting at my desk just giggling. >> Very cool. Now I mean doing music, on the music theme, we got like this chill out cooler stereo bag. >> Yeah, I saw that. >> So I don't know if you saw that, but it's like this psychedelic different patterns. It has like two speakers in them. >> I mean you're not gonna get the best sound quality out of it probably, that's my opinion, because it's a portable thing - >> Yeah. >> - and it's built into a cooler. >> Now another item that's on our Crave blog that I saw is the Polaroid digital picture frame. A photographer named Dave Freeman, he had this concept, and Polaroid said we love that so much. And basically the frame itself looks like a Polaroid, and on the bottom of the picture frame in that white space, it's made out of a dry eraser board material. So you can like write you know - >> So just like the old Polaroids. >> Just like the old Polaroids in the frame. Now we know that you guys love free stuff, cause I love free stuff too. So what we have for you is a little trivia question from last week's show. Now the first three people that write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Driving me Cravy, you guys will get a chance to win these free cool slider iPhone cases from End Case. So do it. And Jasmine, you have the question, right? >> Yes, I do. On the last episode of Crave, what was the name of the girl that Brian was stalking slash spying on? >> Stalking? >> Spying on, stalking, whatever. >> Oh I would never do such a thing. >> Sure you wouldn't. >> So guys just write us at email@example.com, and we'll get back to you. Now it's time where we look out for you in a favorite piece of ours called Do Not Crave. [ music ] Who doesn't love unique case idea for the gadgets? Well a company out of Texas called VIP Fibers has taken on the unique task of taking your pet's own hair and hand spinning it into what they call a fur ever yarn. Yes, from this yarn they will make cases for your cell phone or MP3 player, or just about anything else. So go on home, give Buster a nice brush, and make a case out of fur from his back leg. Now they do make a point that they do not blend wool with your pet's own hair, so hey, it's 100% Buster. That's really nice. Now your house may be covered with fur and smell like a dog, but hey now your phone and your pocket can too. We all love our own pets, but come on. This is something that we just got to say we do not crave. All right, so what'd you think of that? >> Eww. >> Eww? >> Eww. >> You know, I can take a brush and like brush your sweater and make my own little case out of it. >> And that would be better than my cat's hair, seriously. [ laughter ] >> All right guys, thanks for coming out to the show today. >> Sure. >> And thanks for joining us, and you guys can catch us another time on Crave. ^M00:03:17 [ music ]
