Say Hi. >> Hi! >> All that and more on this week's Crave. ^M00:00:10 [ Music ] ^M00:00:11 >> What's up guys you're watching Crave. Your place to be with your two technology Geez. Do you like that? >> I love it. >> No, you don't, alright. I'm here with my new hostess with the mostest for this week Miss iJustine. She came all the way out here to visit our set and iJustine can you tell people at home, kind of what you do. >> I'm a video blogger, you know, a designer, viral consultant mogul, whatever. >> Viral Consultant. >> You know, we make up things. >> Yes, very good, very good. Now, on Crave what we do is we like to talk about all the cool hip-happening, any corky stuff and you can find all that at our blog at crave.cnet.com and iJustine came loaded with some goodies to talk about. >> Yes. >> So, what do you got? >> I have got this Nokia N95 and it's got this application called Qik. >> Okay. >> So, it's right now, it is streaming live to the internet and people are chatting. >> So, this video is running like I could be saying hi. They're chatting on top of this as well? >> They are. >> Wow, so this is made like perfect custom-tailored for you because you're a blogger, you're all over the place and this runs wherever you run. >> It is. I used to carry a laptop around to do this same thing and now I have a phone. >> And back -- yeah, back in the day you could have worn like a hat with the camera on it. >> I could have. >> Really nerdy stuff. >> I may or may have done that. >> Not nearly as attractive, huh? No. >> Not good that way. >> Now one of the things that I brought is a Slash-resistant T-shirt and it's made from a company in Japan. >> Slash-resistant like a knife? >> Yeah, if I try to knife you, you'd be like, oh, oh hit me, you know, you won't get hit. So, it's this meshy material and basically I guess there are a lot of violent crimes where people are getting stabbed on the streets. >> Uh-hum. >> And you know, it's like around 200 bucks. You can wash it. >> Oh. >> It's machine washable. >> That's perfect. >> So, someone like you could sport it. I don't know if you wanna to sport it just the shirt, like it's meshy. It's -- I don't know if it's see-through. I don't know. >> Yeah, I wanna go with a no on that one. >> Okay, okay. You -- okay, that's fine. >> I don't get knife fights too frequently. >> Not yet. >> Not yet. >> Aren't you thinking of going down to LA maybe, I mean there -- a little more activity out there than Pittsburg. >> You know, I'll scream alive. >> Okay. Alive and knife fight. All right, what else you got. >> I have the Flip Video. >> Ah, yes. >> This has been out for a while, but for some reason, I'm just discovering it now. It records 640 by 480. There's two versions, there's a 30 minute and 60 minute. So this is the Ultra. It's got the built-in USB. >> Oh, you had to flip it out like that. >> Oh yeah. You know, flip. >> Flip to lift it. >> Yeah that's great because it is mounted to this drive and you can just upload straight to wherever from there. >> Well, the cool thing about that is it has been out for a while, but not a lot of people know about it. I took it to a concert and you know I was using it they thought it was a digital camera. >> Yeah. >> They have no idea I was recoding Niel [presumed spelling] like the whole time. >> Well the best thing too is the audio is great on this. >> So, you would definitely recommend it just for a casual video person or a blogger. >> I mean, it's mostly -- it's not HD, but the quality is still great. >> Yeah. >> And you can capture pretty much anything. >> Now another thing that I got is there's a service called, My Photo Wall. It's from a company in England and what they do is take like a digital photo and they can blow it up to 16 times the size of the original size, but pop it on your wall. So you basically have this huge poster. >> You serious? >> Yeah, but I mean, what would you -- if you could that like what type of picture would you put on your wall. >> If I tell, hmmm. >> Yeah, do it. >> What if it's a large Steve Jobs face. >> A large Steve Jobs face -- on your wall? >> Do you think it's weird? >> Bedroom wall, or like living room or what? >> I don't know. I haven't decided yet. >> Hopefully not the ceiling, because that's a little more deserving. >> Hey, let's not go there. >> Okay, well we also wanna to congratulate our winners from our last contest. The trivia question was basically, how many animals sounds were aired last [inaudible]. Do you know? Can you just take a wild guess. >> Fifteen. >> Fifteen -- no. Five -- five animal sounds was the number and our winners were Rachel Shackman [presumed spelling] and Kevin Wang [presumed spelling]. So, we wanna say congrats to them. This week we don't have a trivia question, but you know we'll be fully loaded -- ha ha ha. Loaded is one of our shows. >> Ha, ha. >> Yeah, we'll have another one for you guys next week. All right everybody, now it's time for a segment where we look out for you. Are you familiar with this one? >> Yes. >> It's called Do Not Crave. ^M00:04:01 [ Music ] ^M00:04:03 >> The world has become a whole lot bigger to all of us. Thanks to technology, but everyone still yearns for that personal human touch. Well, LG has managed to bridge that gap with this new slider cell phone, the LG SH240. How you ask, well this phone's sports the unique characteristic where its keypads claims to feel just like real human skin. Yeah, that's just weird. Reaching out and touching somebody has a whole new meaning. And if this phone takes off, like what's next. Do you want door handles that feel like hands? Or straws that feel like skin against your lips? Well, we appreciate companies that take big risks but for this phone -- c'mon now. We just gotta say, Do Not Crave. So, what do you think of that? >> That's kind of disgusting. >> Would you like touch the phone. >> That's like, oh hey. >>Against your face? >> Hi, how's it going? >> All right, well thanks for coming out to the show. >> Thanks for having me. >> And will you come back the next time down the road? >> You got it. >> Okay, love it. All right, there you go guys. Check out our blog at crave.cnet.com and we will see you guys next week. ^M00:05:04 [ Music ]
