The Best Unboxing Video Ever

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

Unboxing videos – we’ve all seen them, but you’ve never seen an unboxing video quite like this. This is bigger than the iPhone 4 unboxing. It’s more moving than unboxing the MacBook Air. This unboxing video could be the last unboxing you ever watch. And as if one unboxing wasn’t enough, you get 2 for the price of 1 in this extended look inside the world of unboxing videos.

I’ve been waiting for some amount of time for this particular product. I can’t even remember back to when I began the countdown. True to form, I had my unboxing juice by my side. I was happy to note that the box is of perfect shape and has no obvious damage on any side.

I like that the barcodes on this beautiful white box are very tightly packed. I wouldn’t be too thrown off by this. Normally, they’re written in a vertical orientation. This set is nothing short of that. I do see, however, that the stamp on the label is slightly malformed. I don’t know if that means this box has been damaged in some unknown capacity. I guess we shall find out any moment now.

Unlike real men, I use scissors to cut open my boxes. Make sure you never run with them in your hand. You can injure – or seriously kill – yourself. This is the reason why many unboxing videos are cut in half. The person recording just doesn’t listen to his mother and runs around the house with the scissors in his hand at the end.

This particular cardboard happens to be of the corrugated variety. This makes my box nice and sturdy yet still easy to cut through with my scissors. This is my favorite type of cardboard out there. It’s not too thick and not too thin, and it has ridges!

Much like mini-pads, this box has wings. I don’t know if this is something you are looking for, but I certainly appreciate it. If you’re looking for the wings, this type of box will work perfectly. It will make you doubly happy! It has a bonus set of wings hidden inside!!

Inside, you’ll see we have a very nice and uniform tan color. This is something I found rather nice about this box. The brown is a very nice contrast against the white on the outside and on the sides themselves. It’s perfect to carry around after Labor Day when ladies aren’t supposed to be seen in white.

The craftsmanship that went into this box is just fantastic. There are some type of raised letters or numbers imprinted on the bottom. It’s not Braille, but it’s kind of cool to pretend that it is!

This is totally the best unboxing I’ve ever done. I don’t think this box could get any better. I haven’t gotten any paper cuts. This speaks to how well the box was made. There’s no word on what the next version of this box will be like, but I’ll be sure to let you know as soon as I have my hands on one.

Don’t forget – this box is actually something you can recycle.

This is likely the last unboxing video I will ever record. They simply aren’t interesting, yo. If you’re someone who goes around watching this type of video, then STOP IT!

You are welcome.

Did You Purchase the iPad 2 Today?

The iPad 2 was released in stores today and I was definitely one of those people who chose to stand in line to get one. Did that really surprise you? A friend of mine was holding my place in the line here in my local area. There weren’t many people in line when I headed over. I chose not to go to an actual Apple store so that I could hopefully avoid having to deal with larger crowds.

I am selling both of my old iPads and am actually getting a pretty good price for them. Who says that they won’t hold resale value?! The amount I’m getting for the two older models is enough to cover the new iPad, which will be the WiFi 3G version once again – mainly for the GPS option. I will also be getting one of the SmartCovers – likely a black one. My iPad will be black, as well. I personally just don’t like white devices.

I don’t know how many of you out there are getting iPads, but two of my friends who are anti-Apple normally are both getting one. You all know one of these people fairly well. I won’t disclose his name at this point in time. Suffice to say, you will be shocked when you figure it out. It’s someone you would never have expected to own an iPad.

After recording the unboxing video, I plan to record one giving my initial impressions of the new device as well as giving a comparison of the two iPad iterations. Additionally, I want to attempt to record a video showing the differences between the iPhone 4 camera and the one built in to the iPad 2 – which admittedly isn’t that great.

I don’t think the quality of the camera really matters all that much in the grand scheme of things. How many times have you complained about the low quality of a webcam on your notebook or laptop? Has that stopped you from wanting, buying and using the device? Of course it hasn’t, so why should it stop you from buying and using an iPad? The camera isn’t what the device was created for – it’s simply an added bonus.

It’s nice to see that so many of you plan to pick up the original version of the iPad now that the prices have been dropped. Even though it’s the first generation, it’s still a fantastic device that holds its own against competitors in the marketplace.

T-Mobile myTouch 4G Unboxing

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

The T-Mobile myTouch 4G is one of three phones with 4G capability available from T-Mobile. In this video, Lockergnome’s Jake Ludington does an unboxing of the myTouch 4G, walking through the contents of the box and some of the core features of this Android phone. One unique feature of the myTouch 4G packaging is the ability to use the included zipper case as a protective case for other things you might want to carry in a purse or backpack.

Jake would like T-Mobile to stop showing that video as soon as you begin to use your phone for the first time. Seriously. No one needs to see that.

Take note that once you select your theme, you then have the options to set up your social networks. This is definitely the way to do things: don’t make us have to find apps to connect where we want to be. Don’t put it off any longer than you have to. Get us hooked up and sending out information immediately. We cannot be away from Twitter and Facebook more than a few moments, you know! (And we know YOU can’t, either!)

Setup and configuration is fairly simple, and won’t require you to read the included user guides.
