On Gear Live: The Technics 1200 Turntable Returns

Unboxing Live 173: iPhone 6S Launch and Unboxing

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.

Unboxing Live 146: Apple iPhone 6 Plus

Apple has released the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and we were on hand at the Apple Store in Lynnwood, WA at the Alderwood Mall to get our hands on one of the first units (and one of the very few gold iPhone 6 Plus models that were in stock.) We open up the new iPhone 6 Plus in this episode of Unboxing Live, and give you a look at the 5.5-inch smartphone in all its glory, along with all included accessories.

If I seemed tired in this one, it's because I arrived at 9:00pm the night before the iPhone went on sale, and this video was recorded 16(!!!) hours later when I finally had the device in-hand and ready to unbox.

Apple iPhone 5c unboxing gallery

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Cell Phones, Features, Galleries

We're putting the finishing touches on our iPhone 5c review, and in the meantime, we've put together a large gallery of images showcasing Apple's new lower-cost smartphone. The iPhone 5c is everything you liked about the iPhone 5, but ditches the aluminum enclosure for a more colorful plastic outer shell. The device is available in five colors (white, green, blue, pink, and yellow,) and has a slightly improved battery, and an improved FaceTime camera on the front, but other than that, it's an iPhone 5 through-and-through, but $100 cheaper than it used to be. Head on over to our iPhone 5c unboxing gallery to check out the device in some up-close-and-personal images.

You can pick up the iPhone 5c starting at $99 now from the Apple Store.

LUMOback started as a Kickstarter project aimed to helping people maintain proper posture throughout the day. The pitch was successful, and now LUMOback is a reality. We open up the LUMOback posture sensor and give you a look at what it does and how it works. It connects to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad over Bluetooth 4.0, and alerts you when your posture is bad throughout the day, so that you can improve it over time, resulting in less aches and pains, and more energy!
