Crave: Advertising that's the pits! Video Transcript
>> Something gooey for your gadgets, potentially a new PSP. Plus, a new face in the studio, Don Velts [phonetic].
>> Hey, what's up?
>> What's up? All that and more on this week's frame. What's up, guys? You're watching crave. And everything that you find here, all the weird, quirky, cool things in tech, you can find at a blog at crave.cnet.com. Now, I'm here with MP3 editor extraordinaire, Donald Bell. Happy to be here?
>> Good to be here, yeah, absolutely.
>> You know the drill. You come here, bring some cool things. What do you got for us?
>> I brought you one of the more unattractive, still very cool gadgets, that we've reviewed. This is the sound cast outcast outdoor speaker system. It's really powerful. It gets really loud. It's wireless. It works both off of a battery. And also there's a wireless iPod doc that can transmit your music to this thing outside. You just kind of have to cover it up so that it doesn't look like you've got like an oxygen tank. But it sounds great.
>> Now, we do have it connected. So you want to like break us off a little?
>> Oh, absolutely.
>> Okay, let's see what song it actually chooses from your iPod.
>> I went old school.
>> Come on, DB. What else do you got?
>> I've got--again, this is old school. It's a spy camera built into a book. It's a weird book. It's like a Bambi book. And I think the only reason I'm creating it is because it looks so bizarre. Like you wouldn't actually want to keep it on your bookshelf because it would look so out of place. And the camera built inside of it is like, it's an analog camera. It's not digital. So it uses like 110 millimeter film. This is like a weird film format. The only reason I really want it is to actually go and use it outdoors as just like a camera.
>> So is there some reason why you would even want a spy camera book?
>> It's 35 bucks. And it's cooler than a disposable camera.
>> It's cool at 35 bucks?
>> And then another thing that was on a crave blog is this stuff called sticky goo. Have you seen this?
>> And it's basically this--it kind of looks like silly putty. But, you know, you can roll it on your keyboard.
>> On your cell phone. It's supposed to, you know, I guess it has disinfectants built into it to kill germs.
>> Right. Antibacterial.
>> Yeah. I think all I need to for is because I always eat like bagels at my desk. And all the seeds get stuck in my keyboard. Now, we also wanted to tell you guys, we do have winners from our trivia. Last week, we talked about this balance board game that I was messing with. And the game that we demoed it with was skate-it. So we wanted to give congratulations. We randomly chose three people; Anna Baso [phonetic], Tom Zagasha [phonetic], I hope I've pronounced that right; and Hector Flores [phonetic]. You guys win. So we're going to send you those Kensington battery packs. Coming up, you know what time it is. It's time for a segment called--
>> Do not crave.
>> Advertisers continue to look for new ways to catch our attention. But you'll have to take a look at this one. Welcome to your first pitvertisement [phonetic]. Duh! Why didn't I think of this? The concept of digital TV screens built into the armpits of your shirt? Genius, right? Well, it's developed by deodorant manufacturer, Rite Guard, and this just stinks. All I've got to say is do not crave. Wow, so people are getting really desperate these days.
>> I had no idea how that's going to be. It's weird not being on a subway and like try not to stare at people. But if they've got, you know, if they've got [inaudible] in the armpits.
>> Well, once again, check out everything on our blog at crave.cnet.com, and we'll see you guys next week. ?

At 1,588, it's the final episode of Buzz Out Loud, the podcast that launched a thousand news stories, arguments, hosts and co-hosts, producers, and good times. We packed the studio full -- Tom Merritt, Veronica Belmont, Jason Howell, Rafe Needleman, Donald Bell, plus, of course, Molly Wood, Brian Tong, and Stephen Beacham...and it's possible there was some Champagne, a little whiskey, some cake, and even a couple of news stories. Oh, and tears. Definitely tears.
