>> Mono racers, USB bling bling, and a Buddha phone, plus, Miss Bonnie Cha. Say hello.
>> Hi there.
>> All that and more on this week's Crave. ^M00:00:09 [ Music ]
>> Hey, hey guys. Welcome to Crave, you know everything where we talk about the cool goodies and gadgets. And with me on the set is Miss Boom Cha. I can't stop saying your name.
>> I know. I need to think of a nickname for you.
>> Boom cha cha cha. [ Laughter ]
>> Anyways, everything that we talk about, you guys can find at our Crave blog at crave.cnet.com. Bonnie, you came here. You gotta bring something, right?
>> I did. I brought something.
>> What'd you bring?
>> I brought the 8-gigabyte Nokia N95. This is like the N95 that everybody loves, but it's got 8 gigabytes of internal memory.
>> So how do you like --kind of like, would you keep it?
>> I would if I could afford it. [ Cash register sound ]
>> We've talked about the Nokia N95, like, to death here at CNET...
>> ...'cause there's been so many iterations and whatnot.
>> I know, I know.
>> But it's kind of nice to see it in black.
>> It is. Seriously.
>> All right. That's cool.
>> Well, one of the things that I've got is USB jewelry.
>> And I don't know what you think about this, but there has been USB jewelry out there.
>> But now they came out with cufflinks for guys that's like 2-gigabytes. Totally, like, the fashion accessory for techno sexuals, if you know any.
>> I don't.
>> You don't?
>> Okay. Okay. That's good. I thought you were gonna say, like, I know you. ^M00:01:12 [ Music ]
>> What else have you got?
>> I have the monocycle. It's basically like a motorcycle, but it's got a cabin so you don't get helmet hair.
>> [ Laughter ]
>> I [inaudible].
>> I wouldn't want to ruin your hair.
>> I'm looking after you, Bri.
>> I'm glad -- I know that now so I can invest in the mono racer now, right?
>> I looked at it. It's pretty sleek. It looks very Jetson-like, right?
>> Would you roll in that?
>> I think I'd try it.
>> Oh. Really?
>> I'd give it a shot.
>> It's got little training wheels that retract out. [ Bicycle bell ]
>> Now, the next thing that I've brought to the table is the Buddha phone. This phone is, like, plated in 24-carat gold, plus it's been blessed by a Buddhist monk.
>> It has.
>> How can you turn that down?
>> It's kind of ugly.
>> It -- well, it's -- they tried to make it look cool. It's, like, totally too blingy.
>> I know.
>> It's too blingy
>> It's too blingy. It's got, like, jade and, like, diamonds on the back, too. Doesn't it?
>> I just want to know, like, if you have road rage, if you put that phone next to your ear will it...
>> Oh yeah. It will, like, calm you down?
>> Moment of zen?
>> Like, mmm.
>> Mmm. ^M00:02:01 [ Music ]
>> All right, well, that was all the things that we crave. And if you guys have anything that you'd like to tell us about, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Now it's time where we do our Crave trivia because we like to take care of you guys. So, Bonnie, you have the question, correct?
>> I do. How many different rooms did Brian mention in last weeks hamster wheel segment?
>> That's -- now did you watch it?
>> Sure I did.
>> Well, maybe -- what was another item on Crave last week?
>> Cool. Awesome. Thanks for hosting.
>> Really appreciate it. Now the first three people with the correct answer are going to get these cool cases from Power Support. It's a skin case for your Nano with, like, a plastic stand. So that's really cool. Just email us at email@example.com. And now you guys know what time it is. It's all about Do Not Crave. ^M00:02:45 [ Music ]
>> Celebrity endorsed and themed products are nothing new. I mean remember Beyonce's B'Phone? But here's one that caught my eye. Now NBA superstar Allen Iverson is getting his own Zune. [ Crickets chirping ]
>> Is it me or did it just get real quiet? Well, here's the details. A limited edition 8-gigabyte Zune will have an etching of AI on the back. Still not tempted? Oh, okay. Well, I forgot. It'll also come packaged with a pair of shoes called the Answer XI Zune Special Edition. Now, look at those things. They're gross. They're disgusting. Like, Allen Iverson is one of my fave players of all time, but there's no way in hell he'd wear those shoes and rock a Zune at the same time. Well, lucky for us, they're only producing 60 of these bundles. But even if you're a hard collector and an Iverson freak, don't do it. We just gotta say Do Not Crave. So what did you think of those shoes?
>> I'm not gonna say anything.
>> Very decorative?
>> They are. They're very decorative.
>> And I'm a little afraid of Allen Iverson. So...
>> All right. Well thanks for coming out to the show.
>> And just remember; check out our site at crave.cnet.com. And we'll see you guys next week. ^M00:03:53 [ Music ]
