On Gear Live: Apple Changes the Mac Forever, iOS 14, and more w/ Guest Mark Gurman!

We just threw up a new Unboxing Gallery, focusing on the new iPod nano. Of course, Nick Starr sent us his images of the new silver nano - but we had to go the manly route, picking up a pink 2G nano for your unboxing pleasure. Hit the gallery to check out fifteen unboxing images.

Our friend Nick Starr went out and purchased one of the new second generation iPod nanos with the quickness, and sent us notice of his unboxing gallery of the device. Of course, this is the one that Steve Jobs introduced in his keynote yesterday. These things are even thinner than the original nanos, and sport new aluminum casing.

Check out the rest of the unboxing images over at Nick’s Flickr pool.

This is the one we have been waiting for. The TiVo Series 3 has been received and unboxed by one lucky fella, and he snapped images for all of us to drool over. The current rumor is that the Series 3 will be launching sometime between September 12 and September 16 - right on time for the holiday season. This one sports dual CableCARD slots, and a total of six tuners. If anyone else gets one, feel free to send us the images. In the meantime, check out this TiVo Series 3 video preview.

Optimus Mini Three

It seems like we have waited for both the Optimus OLED Keyboard and the for an eternity. While the keyboard is still laying low somewhere in vaporland, the Mini Three has finally surfaced. ThinkGeek will be selling the devices, and got their hands on one. They took a few images of the process, and things look good. Of course, the thing does only have three keys…so really, this is all about the cool factor.

Mac Pro Unboxing

More Apple love here on Unboxing, as Apple has just announced the replacement to the G5 PowerMac, the Mac Pro. A few people have already started to receive their orders, and one person put up his Unboxing images over at the MacRumors forums for all to enjoy. Anyone else out there pick up one of these beasts?

TabletKiosk eo

Unboxing reader thoughtfix recently picked up one of the new TabletKiosk eo UMPC units, and has shared his Unboxing images for all to see. The eo UMPC v7110 comes packed with a bunch of accessories, and the mobile unit itself looks quite slick. While I will personally be waiting for the Vista UMPC units before taking the plunge, the images do make me question my seemingly sound judgement.

Gear Live iRiver clix Giveaway

So, check it. Gear Live reader and forum contributer Admiral_Kirk made it clear to us that our recent contests have been a bit too hard, not allowing the Average Joe to win because of the expertise required. Fine, we can understand that. So, we decided that to make up for that, we will make it insanely easy to win an iRiver clix from us. I mean, seriously, the person who wins is the person who wants it the most.

We want you, our readers, to help support the site in any way you can think of. No, we are not taking cash donations, we want to see your creativity. How can you support us you ask? Easy:

  • Start posting on our forums, and contribute to discussions taking place there. We will be monitoring them - if you become a regular, you are entered to win.
  • Add us to your Digg and/or Netscape friends lists - username andru - and vote for the stuff we submit. If you help promote any of our stories, from any of our sites (Gear Live, Playfeed, The Bleeding Edge, TV Envy, Unboxing, End Score, etc.), you are entered to win. There is no limit to the number of entries.
  • Link to us on your site, your MySpace page, your blog, in your signature on forums you visit, wherever. Tell the world about us. Oh, and the more creative, the better. If you do something wildly outlandish (like pulling up the site on every PC in Best Buy), send us proof.
  • Subscribe to any (or all) of our free magazine subscriptions. Each time you subscribe to something you haven’t subscribed for in the past, you are entered to win.
  • Do things we haven’t even thought of.

Now, we want you to tell us what it is you are doing to enter the contest. That is why we have set up this forum thread - when you do something, let us know. Did you Digg a Gear Live story? Let us know. Subscribe to a few magazines? Tell us. Plaster your cat with the Gear Live logo? Post pics. Let’s have some fun with this one guys. The contest will run through the end of August, and in the spirit of the whole word of mouth thing, we want at least ten people in the running. Of course, we expect a lot more than ten to enter, because - quite frankly - this one really is a giveaway. There is no limit to the number of times a person can enter - you are limited by your own time and imagination. Oh, and location, as you must have a US shipping address to be eligible to win.

Any questions? Ask in the forum. Good luck!
