Let me preface this with a question: Can Apple really sell anything as long as it has its logo affixed to it?The Apple Watch, in a sense, is the first new product launch since Steve Jobs. There has been a lot of doubt surrounding Tim Cook and whether or not he can lead Apple to a future just as bright (or maybe even brighter) than if Steve was still with on this earth. Though Steve Jobs is depicted as a self-centered, egotistical, control freak, he had a knack for being a brilliant businessman, having a keen sense of good versus bad design, and the ability to stretch the limits of current capabilities. Given all those qualities that made him into a unique human being, the world was given the iMac, the iPod, and the iPhone – three consumer electronic devices that changed the very history of technology for the better (or to some, for the worse).
Earlier this week, Microsoft hosted the first of its 12 Days of Christmas promotion by discounting a limited (read: 20 units per store, 100 units online) Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet by a whopping 66%! Unfortunately for me, I had to settle for the slightly less satisfying $199 price, which was a pretty good deal for a 32GB tablet.
With its impending arrival, a thought trickled into my mind: What better way to christen the arrival of a new gadget in your life than to record an unboxing?
One step closer to tech blogging infamy.
In case you are wondering, I recorded the video with my Nexus 4. Since I don’t own a dedicated tripod I had to improvise and use a car mount. The audio was done separately using the Blue Yeti Microphone, the same device I use for the podcast. The editing was then completed using iMovie.
Thoughts, comments, feedback?
As always with any new endeavor, I welcome your thoughts on the video. Did I forget to mention something important? Was it paced well? Did you find it informative?
Thanks for watching!
