Google’s Nexus 7 Fail Unboxing Video-s (No, they are not fake)

This is one of the funniest unboxing video I have ever watch. Google’s Nexus 7 tablet unboxing video. No, is not just one, but alot of them have issues getting their brand new Nexus 7 out of the box.

Yes, I’m an Apple fan boy, but anyone who have bought any product from Apple before will love the unboxing experience. It was rumored that every single detail of how you actually unbox the product of Apple was engineered and tested. Seriously it is still the best experience I ever had.

Check out this Nexus 7 unboxing video, you will love it:


Retina Macbook Pro Can Power 4 Display

Retina Macbook Pro is really a powerhouse laptop. Tons of very good review on the performance and incredible display, this 2012 Retina Macbook Pro can really do replace your home Mac Pro or iMac. Very very good performance for such a thin and light laptop.

4 Display 15 millions of Pixel.

One issue to replace your Mac Pro or iMac is screen real estate, Retina Macbook Pro have a great looking 15 inch Screen, but to many power users it is not enough. Worry no more, this Macbook Pro can power up to 3 other display excluding its own screen. Pretty impossible for a small size laptop like it.

The MacBook Pro pictured is connected to two iMacs running at 2560×1440 over Thunderbolt, with an additional LG monitor connected over HDMI running at 1920×1200. Not only can the MacBook Pro now push nearly 15 million pixels

OWC reports that the MacBook Pro was able to play video simultaneously on all four displays without any lag. Very very cool.
