Unboxing Live 061: Motorola Devour

After all the and phones, Verizon launched the Motorola Devour, and Android messaging phone. We picked up a Devour to give you a look at the device, which certainly isn’t aimed at the high-end smartphone crowd. However, since the Sidekick has pretty much fell off the face of the earth, we thought the Devour would be attractive to that younger crowd that’s into text messaging but doesn’t need an overly expensive data plan. Check out the Motorola Devour in this episode.

Unboxing Live 059: Xbox 360 S

Microsoft announced the new Xbox 360 S last week at , and we were able to get our hands on one soon after to give you a look at all the goodness. As a refresher, the newly redesigned Xbox 360 is 35% thinner than the original, and features a glossy black exterior. It ships with a 250GB hard drive that’s been redesigned to fit into the new shape of the console, and it drops the memory card slots. Even better, it comes with built-in 802.11g/n Wi-Fi, so there is no need for any sort of external dongle accessory anymore. Hit the video for all the rest, but just know that you can pick up the new Xbox 360 now for $299.


Unboxing Live 058: Apple Mac mini unibody 2010

Apple just released a brand new, completely redesigned Mac mini, sporting a new unibody enclosure. We quickly got our hands on the new mini, which also sports other notable improvements (SD card slot, HDMI port, upgraded NVIDIA graphics chip,) so that we could get to work on testing for our review. In the meantime, though, we figured we’d get an episode of Unboxing Live put together, so that we could give you a look at what’s in the box, and also the unit itself. Apple did a fantastic job at reducing the size of the new Mac mini, while adding a bunch of function.

You can buy the new Mac mini now from Apple.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Features, Videocasts

When Apple introduced the latest generation of to the world, and made it known that they were able to get that LED-backlit display up to 27-inches, we knew it would not only be a gorgeous machine, but it would pretty much be right up there with a low-end Mac Pro if specced out right. We immediately picked up one of the new 27-inch iMacs to put out theory to the test, but in the meantime, we’ve got an unboxing video for you that shows off the ridiculously huge Mac, as well as the little design tweaks and changes that Apple has made to the iMac line since the previous generation.

Unboxing Live 053: DJ Hero Renegade edition

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Video Games, Videocasts

In this episode we open up the DJ Hero Renegade edition set. DJ Hero is the new turntable-based rhythm game featuring hip-hop, electronic, and rock music, and the Renegade Edition has a bunch of premium touches, and is also available just for a limited time. We show it all in this edition of Unboxing Live.

By the way, if you like music and haven’t played DJ Hero, you owe it to yourself to check it out. In our opinion, this is better than any Guitar Hero or Rock Band game that has come before it, in the way that you interact with the music, and the totally unique pairings that they throw at you. We are definitely DJ Hero believers! You can pick up DJ Hero on Amazon.
