I've got the boom -- >> Bonnie: And the flash. >> [sound effect] Yeah, right on, alright, you have a really hot gadget right here. >> Bonnie: I do >> And I'm excited to see it. >> Bonnie: Right >> Yeah, show it to me. >> Bonnie: Alright, got the T-Mobile G1. >> Oh my God. >> Bonnie: I know. >> What sticks out in your mind? >> Bonnie: Ya know what, I really like the interface on it it's really easy to customize, I like that Amazon MP3 Store -- >> Yeah, yeah. >> Bonnie: and things like that, yeah, and it has a full cordia keyboard, so I know a lot of people want that but there are a lot of key features that are missing too, so I'm a little disappointed. >> Such as? >> Bonnie: Such as stereo Bluetooth -- >> Yes >> Bonnie: no video recording. >> And where's that headphone jack we're talking about? >> Bonnie: Oh yeah, it's right here, it's a USB port actually, -- >> Yeah >> Bonnie: so you need an adapter. >> Yeah, no. [music] Also on our Crave blog Eric Franklin [assumed spelling] published this story about the City Wall, it's created by the Helsinki Institute of Information Technology and basically they put this touch wall out in public so people can play and mess with it and people are able to actually submit through text messaging like photos, text message comments -- >> Bonnie: Right >> and it even has the ability to, what is it, detect multiple finger touches. >> Bonnie: Okay >> So, like, ya know, you can put like one hand over here and one hand over there, and just do stuff. >> Bonnie: And just do stuff? >> It's really cool though that they're letting people mess with it. It's kind of like Microsoft Surface. >> Bonnie: Where is it, like, just out. >> I don't -- yeah, I don't -- >> Bonnie: Way to read the article. >> It's there, -- >> Bonnie: It's there at Helsinki, find it >> just go to Helsinki. [music] Speaking of sweet. >> Bonnie: Yes >> What you got? >> Bonnie: So there's this cotton candy maker from Japan, you can put in a hard candy like a Jolly Rancher or something like that and it'll spit out cotton candy. >> No >> Bonnie: Yeah, yeah. >> So, like you can make Jolly Rancher -- >> Bonnie: Use any hard candy. >> I saw the pictures of the cotton candy, it looks like hair, like pet fur on a stick. >> Bonnie: It's so gross, it's like a little cotton ball of -- >> It's pet fur on a stick, but if it tastes like, ya know, my cherry Jolly Rancher, then I might give it a shot. [music] Now, with the Halloween season everyone wants, ya know, what's the coolest costume they can get. CoastalContacts.com have these crazy contacts, it's for the entire eyeball, like it covers the white of your eyeballs, you can have like dragon eyes, fire eyes, monster eyes, and they're FDA approved, I don't know how that works. >> Bonnie: I don't know. >> They also offer them in prescriptions or without a prescription. I just think they're really cool, like, ya know, if I looked at you right now like -- does that scare you? [music] Alright now, also, you guys sent in so many submissions for our Crave trivia, this week we literally had over 120. >> Bonnie: That's awesome. >> The Crave nation keeps growing. >> Bonnie: I love it. >> So, why don't you help 'em out and tell 'em what the answer was to the question. >> Bonnie: So there was 2 answers to the question. The composer was Hal David [assumed spelling]. >> Of that song I was singin'. [singing] What the world needs now, sing it with me Bonnie, is love, sweet love. >> Bonnie: Hal David wrote the lyrics, right? >> Yup >> Bonnie: And the composer was Burt Bacharach, so. >> Bacharach, that's, and, ya know, a lot of you sometimes had one or the other, sometimes both, and some people that wrote, what's her name, Jackie McSheenan [assumed spelling] whe was the lady that made it popular but she had nothing to do with the writing or composition, so the winners for Crave, we've got their names here, Rangithe Joy [assumed spelling], Ron Dolard [assumed spelling], and Mr. David M., so congratulations guys, thanks for writing in. Now, for this week's Crave we don't have any trivia but we want you guys to participate and actually send us your creations, we're gonna let you be a little artistic and create your own Crave logos, whatever you want to put in it, our faces, cool affects, and, ya know, hand-drawn, send them to Driving me Cravy at CNET.com, we're gonna actually show them on our show and also give out some really hot prizes but I'm not gonna tell you what they are because sometimes it's gotta be a secret, yeah? >> Bonnie: That's good -- >> Okay, cool. >> Bonnie: keep 'em guessin'. >> Alright, now it's time for you know what's do not Crave. [music] Personal hygiene and taking care of yourself is important, but not this important. Now, check out this deodorant dock, it was a project by two Concordia University students that tracks when you remove your deodorant stick, how long it's out, and then that info is sent via Ethernet to a site that lets everyone know your armpit status, wow. Now, it was done to parody how ridiculous people are getting with updating on social networking sites and letting everyone know their inner secrets, but could you imagine this idea imbedded into other daily functions. Now, I wont' say it I'm just gonna let you guys use your imagination 'cause it's a lot better than mine, do not Crave. Alright, so, what type of, ya know, hygiene things would you want to know about me? >> Bonnie: [laughing] >> Like when I brushed my teeth last? >> Bonnie: I think you need to -- >> Okay >> Bonnie: brush 'em. >> I had garlic and ginger for lunch. >> Bonnie: For lunch, that's what I thought. >> I just ate right off the stalk. >> Bonnie: [sound effect] >> [sound effect] That's kind of weird that we both did that at the same time, same sound effect. Alright guys thanks for watching Crave, you know how to get to us, check out the blog, Crave.CNET.com, send us your little pictures, everything we asked for and we'll see you guys next week. ^M00:05:18 [ Music ]
