Ep. 08: Back to the Futurama Video
This week, Donald and Jasmine bask in the glory of an Eric Franklin-less Crave, ogling a glimpse of the future in the form of new holographic technology. Also on our radar at the moment: a new type of grill that goes behind your teeth, some bus stop distractions for our fellow San Franciscans, and super dangerous flaming gloves that no meth head should ever possess. And of course no show would be complete without some excitement over beer, in this case a super speedy bottom-filling beer dispensing system. Finally, we stuff our faces--both real and ceramic--with cookies, pizza, and a spectacular-looking torta.
Crave Extra welcomes Bonnie Cha! She and Eric Franklin discuss all things Windows Phone 7.
What's the point of that hotrod computer without a sweet monitor to go with it? CNET's Tech Editor Eric Franklin offers tips on how to pick out the best monitor for you.
With Jasmine out on vacation, Donald brings CNET Labs' Eric Franklin into the studio for an epic nerd session on audio quality measurements, including recent test data from the Zune HD and iPod Touch. We've got charts, folks!
On this week's Crave vodcast, we attempt to answer the pressing question of which one is creepier: a Barbie cleavage cam or machine-gun wielding security cam. Either way, a camera's gonna getcha. Also on tap is a wide array of robotic walking aids, from an even lazier version of the roller shoe to sweet bionic legs for the disabled and the military. Plus, Jasmine thinks a killer drone is cute, Donald geeks out on a Super Mario star tattoo, and Eric is just...Eric.
Donald Bell goes toe to toe with the Dell Streak while Eric Franklin takes bets on the winner.
Jasmine's back, and she and Donald tackle the Android-based Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet that just landed in the office--with plenty of unboxing goodness. Also, a new Cowon player is teased in Asia, and Jasmine rants uncontrollably about the sweet new Japan-only Walkmans that she's dying to get her hands on. Finally, no MP3 Insider would be complete without a sojourn into iPod Touch/Zune HD territory, which is exactly where the updated CNET Prizefight comes into play.
CNET's Donald Bell and Eric Franklin scour the 2011 Maker Faire in search of Crave-worthy tech -- preferably the stuff that shoots fire.
While Jasmine's away, Donald and Eric fully nerd out with robots, robots, more robots, and vodka.
This week, Lego goes crazy for Minecraft (even if we don't), the Death Star gets a real-world estimate, DARPA invests in making Avatar a reality, and Eric and Bonnie make their Barbie dreams come true. In Geek news, Eric is obsessed with Mass Effect 3; he also shows off a mash-up of "The Prestige" and the latest "Dark Knight" trailers.
