Outtakes from episode 1282.
It's finally here, the moment we've all been waiting for: Apple sued HTC, Google went to Defcon 5, and now tech world destruction is imminent. Take cover, everyone.
Aunt Jill is back from her sojourn to Italy where she went off the grid, only to return to a battalion of Internet trolls on her LinkedIn. We'll shield her from harm, and she'll return the favor by answering a few of your finance questions.
It's an unlikely pairing: security officials and underground hackers. Every year, they make peace and share information at Defcon, Black Hat's sister conference. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports from the 16th annual event that begins in Las Vegas this weekend.
CNET senior editor Seth Rosenblatt has just returned from back-to-back annual computer security conferences in Las Vegas: Black Hat and Defcon. In this Inside Scoop, he chats with Kara Tsuboi about iOS app vulnerability, the Ninja phone, and hackable conference badges.
It can't pass muster as a camera phone, but as a quality music handset, the Samsung SGH-i450 more than holds its own.
Dong Ngo pays a visit to Crave this week and brings with him a handy little gadget that justifies his drinking on the job. Also, we let a conversation on 3D camcorders descend into porn talk (naturally), and Eric scares the bejesus out of Jasmine with a creepy, limbless robot baby...or at least the thought of one. Finally, Donald whets our appetites with some Star Wars-themed kitchen toys that are bound to make your cookies and sandwiches more tempting, if not actually more tasty.

Today we talk with them about their experiences and their takeaways from the annual hackathon in the desert.
It's the annual Buzz Out Loud predictions show, where the team puts their collective analyst heads together and predict the future--well, the next 12 months of the future or so. On this year's show, we've got everything from life on Mars to true holograms (at least in demo form), Apple releasing its own TV, a new social media phenomenon around food, and the impending awesomeness of the WebOS tablet. Oh, and the Singularity arriving. No, seriously. --Molly
