>>New MacBook Pro's, a portable karaoke system for your iPod and robotic plants, plus Ms. Bonnie Cha in the studio all that and more [Background music] on this weeks Crave. What's up guys, welcome to Crave, everything cool, quirky, fun, intech, I've got the boom.
>>Bonnie Cha: What's up?
>>How's it goin?
>>Bonnie Cha: Good how are you?
>>I'm doing great. Honestly I'm kinda sick so you guys have to forgive me if my voice kinda cuts out here and there but I'm alive, I'm here for the show. So let's get going.
>>Bonnie Cha: Let's get going.
>>What do you got in your hands? Shiny, new, metal, hot, sexy
>>Bonnie Cha: The new MacBook Pro, the new chiclet keyboard here.
>>Do you like that better?
>>Bonnie Cha: You know what? I kinda like the old one
>>Yea some people are saying that.
>>Bonnie Cha: But I'm sure I'll get used to and like they were talking about it, it's probably easier to clean.
>>That's true, that's true.
>>Bonnie Cha: Yea, and then the new multi-touch trackpad.
>>It is pretty sexy. What about the screen? People are complaining about the glossy
>>Bonnie Cha: It's too shiny.
>>Is it too shiny for you?
>>Bonnie Cha: Well I don't think so. I mean, I love it.
>>I kinda like it cause I can see my reflection in it all the time.
>>Bonnie Cha: You're such a
[ Music ]
>>Ok, well that's enough about the new MacBook Pro. I've got something a lot cooler. We have, right here between us this is called the Ion Block Rocker. Basically all you gotta do is pop in your iPod and then it becomes like a portable karaoke system. And I figured I'd like to give it a try.
>>Bonnie Cha: Oh, really? Are you sure?
>>Would you like to give it a try?
>>Bonnie Cha: Well, I don't know
>>I just happen to have a song cued up here.
>>Bonnie Cha: Oh, really.
>>What could it be?
>>Bonnie Cha: I do not know.
>>[Background music] I need you boo, oh I can't see you boo,
[ Music ]
>>Now you have something else?
>>Bonnie Cha: I do. It's a little USB thing that you can plug into your PC or computer or your laptop. And then you can put in your film negatives and it will actually scan them for you. So you know, all those old high school, college pictures from the past, put them on your computer.
>>All the things we brought in MacBook Pro and this cool karaoke system and you brought in a USB film scanner? [Laughter]
>>Bonnie Cha: Yea, I did cause I have lots of negatives but I have some film that
>>Dinosaur. That's cool, no that's
[ Music ]
>>Now we also wanted to show off some of our submissions. Last week we asked people to send in their own Crave logos so we have four winners, really cool stuff. So the first one was Derrick Brown and he had this Crave logo and you actually weren't sure what it was at first.
>>Bonnie Cha: Well, I had an idea but I wasn't sure. Sorry Derrick.
>>She had to ask me. That C is a cookie bitten out of it cause I like cookies.
>>Bonnie Cha: Yea, I do too.
>>You like cookies? [Laughter] Ok, Caleb O'Shaskey [Assumed spelling] he gave us this cool medal griddy edgy logo. I thought that was pretty sweet. Photoshop guru, Lucas Wisher [Assumed spelling] I hope I'm saying that right. He did a little digging and he put Bonne's face on a board that I was hugging and then he put vampire's eyes and oh, it was twisted. Ok and finally we've got to give major props, the winner of it all John Dunley [Assumed spelling] He did a hand illustrated version of me and Bonnie. You were in like a bat girl outfit
>>Bonnie Cha: Uh huh and you were Robin
>>Did you see how pasty white my thighs were and skinny? He made me like a rail.
>>Bonnie Cha: I didn't look. Well you are skinny.
>>I don't know. I've got a little more meat on them bones. Alright thank you guys for everyone for submitting and also we have some really cool stuff. Over here Kensington is gonna hook you up and I wanted to show you some of these. They just released their new series of mounts, like car mounts for the car. So we have things like where you can get power. You have a mount for your windshield and then you also have a mount that is specifically for your dash. Ok, well that's it for the goods. Let's just jump in to Do Not Crave.

>>I'm all for doing green things to help out our planet. But robo plants? Now researchers in Korea have developed a robotic plant that functions like a real one. It can produce oxygen, give out scents, emit moisture in the air, I don't know how it does that and imitate photosynthesis. It even leans toward you when you get close to it and blooms and shakes when you talk about it. These dudes need friends. [Background noise] Now this has the nerd version, a little shop of horrors written all over it. Why not just buy a real plant that really helps the earth? Is there any questions? [Music] Do not crave.
[ Music ]
>>I figured out how much it takes to manufacture and make that plastic thing and it actually like hurts the earth more than it helps it.
>>Bonnie Cha: True but what if you don't have a green thumb and kill plants all the time.
>>So that robo plant might work for you?
>>Bonnie Cha: Well, maybe
>>Maybe [Laughter] Alright guys. Thanks for checking us out. You can find everything we talked about on our blog at crave.cnet.com and email us if you feel like it at firstname.lastname@example.org. You know since we have this thing here
>>Bonnie Cha: Oh no
>>I figure maybe we should just take things away, oh what's this. [Singing and laughter]
>>Bonnie Cha: I'm sorry.
