For this week's Crave giveaway, we have the Livio Radio, a Wi-Fi Internet radio optimized for listening to Pandora without a PC. Our reviewer Matthew Moskovciak said this about the product: "The Livio Radio is the first Wi-Fi radio we've tested that is designed completely around the Pandora service, offering all the standard functions--like 'thumbs up/down'--right on the front panel. The gorgeous design is outstanding for the price; it's easy to use and you won't find anything that looks this good until … Read more
Not everybody may be thrilled that the new iPhone 3G S looks exactly like the old iPhone. But its unveiling brought some good news for iPhone accessory manufacturers, especially those that make iPhone protective cases: they won't have to retool and create new accessories for the iPhone 3G S.
Case in point: Mophie's Juice Pack Air, an iPhone battery extender that doubles as a case and happened to be last week's Crave Giveaway of the week. (You can flip the battery on and off, so it'll only draw power when and if you want it to.) … Read more
Update: This week's winner is David P. of Burlingame, CA.
For this week's Crave giveaway, we've got the Mophie Juice Pack Air, a rechargeable battery case for the iPhone 3G.

Normally, the Juice Pack Air goes for $80, but you've got a chance to get one gratis.

For this week's Crave giveaway, we've got the ZVox Z-Base 550, a $500 single-speaker surround system that fits under your flat-panel TV.

Yes, it's svelte; it sounds good; and we know you want it. (Just remember: the Z-Base 550 is designed to support only TVs weighing less … Read more

It's a great read, even if you're not a UK resident.
Some fun tidbits:
- The service converts more than 400 hours of programming each week - During peak hours, BBC iPlayer pumps out 12GB of data every … Read more
