On Gear Live: Top 10 Gear Live tech stories of 2015

It's time for an amiibo blast from the past with the Retro 3-Pack! Included in this set are Duck Hunt (the dog with the duck flying above), Mr. Game and Watch (the predecessor to the Game Boy), and R.O.B. (the robot peripheral for the original NES Nintendo Entertainment System.)

I give you an up-close look at each of these old school amiibo characters, which work great with Super Smash Bros U and 3DS! Let me know your thoughts in the comments - I thought Mr. Game and Watch was pretty cool the way you could change his pose, and the detail in R.O.B. was awesome.

You can order the Amiibo Retro 3-Pack now.

Apple has eliminated most of the fun from Apple Store iPhone launches! In this episode, I am waiting for the iPhone 6S to launch at the Alderwood Mall Apple Store. Typically, there are hundreds of people all camped out, waiting in line, and generally switching between having a great time and hating life depending on the temperature and the rain. This year? For the vase majority of the night it was 3 people. THREE PEOPLE! I was the third to arrive, getting there at 8:00PM the night before launch - last year by then there were 80 people in line. The next person didn't arrive until about 4:30am - 8.5 hours later. I do finally get my hands on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, and bring you an unboxing of the device as well.

You can order the new Apple iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus now.

ENTER OUR BB-8 SPHERO GIVEAWAY!

Apple just announced two new colors for the Apple Watch Sport line - gold and rose gold! Being Apple Watch Sport models, that means that these are made out of 7000 Series aluminum, not actual gold. This is similar to the gold and rose gold iPhone. The gold aluminum color has proven to be very popular for Apple on its iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. Apple also released its new MacBook laptop in a gold color as well.

In this video we open up the 42mm gold Apple Watch with midnight blue Sport Band, as well as the 38mm rose gold Apple Watch with lavender Sport Band, giving you a look at both options.

You can order the new Apple Watch Sport models now.

ENTER OUR BB-8 SPHERO GIVEAWAY!

Apple announced the brand new Apple TV with Siri Remote at its latest event on September 9. I was able to get my hands on a unit that day, and bring you the first unboxing of the new 2015 model Apple TV. As you can see, the Siri Remote control is made of metal and looks nice up close. The hardware buttons will make it less frustrating to use for sure. The Apple TV device itself looks similar to the previous 2012 and 2013 models, just a little bit thicker.

The new Apple TV will ship to consumers in October, but you can get an advanced look here in this episode.

If you need an insanely fast external SSD drive for your Mac or PC, then look no further than the Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+. Despite the name, you can use this drive with either Thunderbolt or USB 3.0, and since it is an SSD with no moving parts, it's ridiculous fast with read and write speeds. I use it to do video editing directly off of for Final Cut Pro X, and it never skips a beat.
