Today I welcome Ryan Block, managing editor of Engadget! He shows us the Wii laptop, one of the best gaming mods I've ever seen. Then, of course, I dazzle him with yet another disco product (are there ever enough?), the Funk Fone. And you'll be dazzled blind by the Diamond Flower, a $24,000 mouse studded with, naturally, diamonds. Last but certainly not least is the Ergopod 500--a great contraption for people who need computer access while they're bedridden, but also a possible earthquake hazard. See you next week!
Don't worry, you won't smell anything unsavory when watching this video, I promise. Somehow, we're still not sick of talking about gadgets after being at CES 2007 in Las Vegas--in fact, we've returned with a whole new appreciation for the weird and random! I'm joined this week by Ariel Nuñez of Gadgettes fame.

Today is my last day here in Vegas, and I still haven't even begun to see everything I wanted to! However, Rich DeMuro and I had a chance to walk around the South Hall and the Sands Convention Center to find some truly craveable gadgets. I'll be back next week with another special guest host in San Francisco. See you then!

Veronica welcomes special guest, CNET TV host Tom Merritt to talk about their holiday wish lists. We also read some wish lists that a couple viewers sent in. In a surprise move, Veronica lays an egg. No, seriously, take a look.

Hey everyone. At lot of you have written in, asking what the fate of the Crave video podcast will be after the loss of our dear friend and Crave cohost, James Kim. Obviously, it's very hard for me to imagine doing the show without him, but it's also something that I love doing and care about very much.
For the next couple of weeks, we're going to give you a preview of some of the neat stuff that we'll be looking at during CES, and I also intend to podcast from the show itself. We'll … Read more
The Crave editors are posting their wish lists, so I felt a little left out. Most of this is wishful thinking, but James and I have hope that someone out there will hear our pleas for expensive gadgets! Just kidding, you don't have to buy anything for us. Instead, send us links to the stuff you're seeing online that you can't live without in the new year!
It's alive! Alive!

I can deal with the printer that makes coffee (I'll take coffee whenever I can get it), but the trippy flowers are too much for me. Keep sending in those links; we're getting some good stuff. Until next time!
