The latest is probably the most convincing, coming in the form of a review and an unboxing video from Let's Play Video Games' Laura Kate Dale. It's here that we see what appears to be a final version of the PS4 Slim, retail packaging and all.

Nextbit Robin: A Modest Proposal and our 3 first impressions

Nextbit Robin: A Modest Proposal and our 3 first impressions

Day 1 with the Nextbit Robin, a smartphone that puts unused apps and media in the cloud to keep the burden of storage off its user. I'm already impressed. Instead of attempting to create another unit that more of less drives toward smartphone aesthetic singularity, this device has a strong, blatantly design-conscious look. It's not for everyone. It's not even for most people. This device is not meant to do battle with Apple and/or Samsung. And it's not going to do battle with either one. Instead, this device is doing something unique.

Apple TV unboxing shows off Siri Remote

Apple TV unboxing shows off Siri Remote

Earlier this month Apple unveiled its new line of products including the revised Apple TV. We spent some hands on time with the new Apple TV and found it to be a nice update. It's about the same size as the old Apple TV with the main difference being that it’s a bit thicker and it has that new Siri remote.

The second in a line of OnePlus smartphones is here, just aching to have its place in the sun alongside the top-tier devices from the world's top manufacturers.

Sphero SPRK edition unboxing: robot education inside-out

Sphero SPRK edition unboxing: robot education inside-out

This morning we're getting our first opportunity to take a peek at the Sphero SPRK edition up close. This device is transparent - as is its charger - aiming to show students how the robot rolls. SPRK stands for Schools, Parents, Robots, Kids, and here we're taking the machine out of the same box the public will, one step at a time. Here we witness the insides of the remote-controlled sphere for the first time - without having to tear the ball apart.

Exploding Kittens stop-motion unboxing

Exploding Kittens stop-motion unboxing

This morning our very own box of Exploding Kittens cards arrived, ready to show us what a massively successful Kickstarter campaign looks like. Using the BLACKBOX company (the same folks that ship Cards Against Humanity) along with hundreds of other contributors, the creators of this game have created a high-quality piece of work. This card game is one of the top 5 most-funded Kickstarter projects ever, and certainly one of the most entertaining. This game also holds high esteem for not losing their cool when their original goal was surpassed by an unimaginable amount.

Moto E 2015 Unboxing: inside Motorola’s special package

Moto E 2015 Unboxing: inside Motorola’s special package

Inside the Motorola Mystery Package we were promised last week comes the Moto E. Our review unit, complete with a box that's massive. This box has some clever outer bits - a "Slide to Start" marking to implicate the package opening direction and a "Fragile" stamp that suggests this is BREAKING NEWS. Inside is a wild Motorola presentation center with sliding doors and an array of bumper covers to outfit the Moto E. A wooden USB stick with information on it about the device and a tag to get us in to the special showing.

We already know that the device will be available in the US on November 7 and it is already available in Japan. Samsung has warned that the Note Edge will be a limited edition device so anyone wanting to pick on up should get it quickly.

The 2013 Mac Pro is here – and it’s beautiful

The 2013 Mac Pro is here – and it’s beautiful

Has there been a desktop computing reinvention quite like the 2013 Mac Pro? At the top of the year Apple's pro-Mac looked like it was facing the axe altogether, an overlooked relic compared to the slick and increasingly powerful iMac. As 2013 draws to a close, however, the new Mac Pro is arguably the most exciting new model to join Apple's range; the epitome of "Think different" as what exactly makes a workstation is called into question. Demand for the new Mac has already seen ship times for new orders stretch out into February 2014 at the earliest, but we've got our hands on the Mac Pro already to see how it holds up.

NVIDIA SHIELD Unboxing and First (final hardware) Impressions

The launch of NVIDIA's SHIELD device has been done in a rather unique way - one in which we've seen and actually played with the device several times before we've gotten a review unit for final testing purposes. Now that we've got the final hardware in the house, and now that it's in it's final packaging ready for the market, it's time again to look at SHIELD for the first time.
