In this episode I open up the brand new iPod touch (6th generation), new from Apple. The new iPod touch features the Apple A8 processor, which is the same 64-bit chip found in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, while maintaining the 4-inch Retina display. This brings the iPod touch out of the virtual stone age that it was in, making it a modern iOS device with 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 (a first for any Apple device), and 1GB RAM. Join me as I open up the package in this episode of Unboxing Live, and give you a full overview of the device!

In this video I show you how to set up the Sonos Play:1 wireless speaker. We unboxed the Sonos Play:1 in our last episode, and setting it up after taking it out of the box is simple when using the free Sonos app for your smartphone or tablet.

As we covered previously, Sonos connects to your wired or wireless Wi-Fi network, allowing Sonos components to talk to each other in different rooms. It's a fantastic system, and thanks to the free Sonos app, it is simple to control. Watch as we set it up in this episode.

HP Elitebook Folio G1 review

Back when we brought you our first-look at the HP Elitebook Folio 1020 G1, many pointed out just how amazing this enterprise-level notebook looked. Obviously, this line of thinking is referring to the fact that business laptops in the past have been plain, mostly matte black affairs that lack any sort of desirability from a consumer perspective. Sure, IT departments get excited about the security features and how cheap they are, but the accompanying bulk, weight, and poor battery life leave much to be desired. HP is aiming to change that with the Elitebook Folio 1020 G1, fancifying what a business laptop can be. Is it worth your attention? Follow along in our HP Elitebook Folio 1020 G1 review for the answer.
