>> What's up guys, you're watching Crave and everything that you see here is on our Crave Blog at Crave.cnet.com. All those quirky, cool gadgets you got. We got the Boom here. What's up?
>> Hi. How's it going?
>> I'm doing great.
>> And so, we're gonna jump right into it. Bonnie, what you got for us?
>> I got the Tri-Bot.
>> The Tri-Bot.
>> The Tri-Bot.
>> You can play games with it and it will guard your stuff.
>> So, is that because you're just looking for a new friend?
>> Kind of.
>> Ohh, that's...
>> I know. It's okay. Tri-Bot
>> What I got is phones from NTT DoCoMo. They just released a new line for phones called the One-Seg phones, but the cool thing about these is that they can actually be submerged underwater. I don't know if that's really cool or not, but you can like watch TV underwater, you know, what do you think about that?
>> I don't know if I'm gonna watch a lot of TV underwater.
>> Okay, but what about this, what if I called you and this is what I might sound like, right? It'll be like... ^M00:01:00 [ Bubbling sound ] ^M00:01:04
>> You know I just said?
>> Ah, no and I'd hang up on you.
>> Oh, that's too bad, I just sacrificed a lot to do that.
>> Yeah, got some water on you.
>> Maybe that's [inaudible]. Another thing that we got on Crave is we have an assignment where we have to go out on the streets to find out what people really think about some of the cool things we have and we have these bags from Built NY and we're gonna find out what people think about it.
>> Do you think you would actually use this maybe?
>> Going to school or something like that, yeah, I'd probably wear 'cause it was like a backpack, so maybe not and around when I'm wearing as close, so Crave.
>> I really don't understand why you need a backpack for your laptop. I mean, could you just put it in a regular backpack. Not Crave.
>> Well, I like the lightweight. It's not like one of those big bulky backpacks. It looks like it would be really easy to get through the airport. I think it looks good too. I think a Crave.
>> For stealing purposes. It looks like you could pretty easily get it off somebody's back and if they started to associate this with backpacks, I wouldn't wear it myself. Not Crave.
>> The backpack here is pretty worthless. I mean it's just for a laptop, like it does nothing else, like what if you wanna put something else in there. I will say not Crave.
>> So we got a lot of mixed reactions from these probably because of this blue wood patterns scare them to death. You know hypercolor force or something like that. What do you think?
>> I think they're ugly.
>> So, what else do you got now. You got a little...
>> I've got your nicknames.
>> My nicknames?
>> So these first two are most favorites for just amusement.
>> Okay, so we have a lot of submissions from...
>> Yes, yes, random submission, some really great ones too.
>> The first one is Squirrel.
>> Squirrel. Why would you choose Squirrel?
>> It's from Justin and this is his explanation, because of your orange quaff.
>> And then your fascination with odd things in nature, e.i. do not crave.
>> Other than that.
>> Your opportunity to show off your tail whenever you want to.
>> Ah, Justin, yeah baby.
>> Okay, next.
>> And then the other one is from Kevin Eckert. And he nicknamed you Stripe from Gremlins.
>> The evil Gremlin leader.
>> So, what are the ones you actually picked?
>> I picked one from Caitlin Berg [presumed spelling] and it was the Bomb dot Tong.
>> Oh, boom. So we got the Boom and the Bomb.
>> Right and then the other one actually works with the boom too. It's from Joe Bennett and it's Flash.
>> Oh, we can actually -- I can adopt that nickname right now, right if you want me to do it.
>> Not that kind of flash.
>> Oh, my bad, okay, sorry.
>> No, no, I mean like you're quick and your hair again.
>> And I can also...
>> And you don't need to do that.
>> Alright, now it's time for us, I mean that you guys all know and love. We're talking about Do Not Crave. ^M00:03:42 [ Music ] ^M00:03:43
>> GPS is going to be integrated in every mobile device you can think of and from China, we bring you the wrist GPS tracker and this thing is fuggly, right? Yeah, okay.
>> Yeah, that's right.
>> It claims to be the smallest gadget of its kind with satellite tracking and texting functions on a wrist watch, but won't you rather have your GPS on a phone that's like nice and big instead of that nasty little small LCD. What could you possibly wear with this, like a purple transformer cost you -- I don't even care. I don't even care about this thing anymore. Okay, we're not gonna give up props because we just think it's gross. So, we just gotta say, Do Not Crave. I was really mean about that, wasn't I? I don't know. I just feel militant because people are ripping on me with a nickname all day. That was cold.
>> I'm hurt guys, I though you like the show.
>> Someone needs a hug?
>> Yeah, I do. Give me a hug.
>> Someone else give him a hug.
>> Okay. That should do it for this week guys, we'll see you next week on Crave and check out our blog at Crave.cnet.com. We'll see you. ^M00:04:40 [ Music ]
