eBay adds daily deals to its extreme makeover, Sprint could be getting a big financial boost, and Photoset shares groups of photos with ease.
It's all the goods from the Crave blog. Brian Tong is joined by guest host Ariel Nunez, who brings a musical flavor to this week's show. They talk about an iPod boom box straight out of the '80s, the super hot Tenori-On musical sequencer, Motorola's ZN5 cell phone that is focusing on photos, and more juice for your iPhone.

Why the long Face...book? A woman battling depression put some pictures of herself having fun privately on Facebook. Somehow the insurance company found them and cut off her benefits saying she looked happy enough and must be cured. Really?

Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, "V For Vendetta" tells the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey (Natalie Portman) who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by a masked man (Hugo Weaving) known only as "V." Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a revolution when he urges his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about V's mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plan to bring freedom and justice back to a society fraught with cruelty and corruption. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel "V For Vendetta" by Alan Moore ("The Watchmen," "From Hell") and illustrator David Lloyd. Directed by James McTeigue from a screenplay by Andy Wachowski and Larry Wachowski. Also starring Stephen Rea, John Hurt, and Stephen Fry.
