Chromecast Unboxing


My Chromecast arrived yesterday! I was lucky enough to order it via Amazon Prime before they sold out, so I didn’t end up with a weeks-long wait. For those unfamiliar, Chromecast is a new device for televisions to stream content directly from the cloud, controlled by your phone, tablet or computer. It’s about the size of a USB thumb drive and plugs right into an HDMI port, allowing you to stream just about any content on the Internet, straight from the source.

Pebble Smartwatch Unboxing and First Impressions

Pebble in the box

It’s here! After months of waiting and numerous delays, my Pebble smartwatch has finally arrived. Even though I’ve only had it for about an hour, I can already tell the wait was worth it. It feels good to wear, it looks good, and the interface is pleasantly simple. This post isn’t a review though, so let’s look at what we’re here for: the unboxing. Pebble’s product box is also its shipping box, reducing the amount of packaging required.

Unboxing: Kindle Fire

Kindle Fire

My office ordered a Kindle Fire for me to use, and it just arrived! Being an Amazon product, it arrived in what they call “frustration-free packaging” with which I would agree. All I had to do was pull a rip tab to open the box, and there was my Kindle. Below the device itself was the charging cable, and inside the lid was a small card introducing the user to the Kindle Fire.

Unboxing: Zoom H4n Portable Recorder

Yesterday I received a new piece of equipment for doing shows & field recordings: the Zoom H4n. This is a portable stereo recorder which can support up to 4 channel simultaneous recording, using a combination of the built-in stereo condenser mics & the XLR & ¼” combination inputs. This is just an unboxing video; the demo & review video will follow shortly after.
