250GB Xbox Kinect bundle spotted on 4GB bundle packaging

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on August 6th, 2010

Looks like we can expect another Xbox 360 bundle soon. The bundle has not yet been announced, but a 250GB Xbox 360/Kinect bundle can be seen on Microsoft’s Australian packaging for the 4GB Xbox 360 / Kinect box.

The 250GB bundle looks similar to the 4GB bundle, with a larger capacity hard drive, a glossy finish, and it includes a headset. We aren’t sure what game comes with the bundle, but it’s most likely Kinect Adventures.

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2010

There have been some previous renders of the Motorola Droid 2 around the internet, but maybe that didn’t convince you that the phone is real and on its way. This ought to do the trick.

Here’s a pic of the Droid 2′s packaging being printed in the plant. If the rumors can be believed, the device has an August 23rd release. So, do you go for the Droid X? Or wait for the Droid 2? Tough call. Which are you guys going for?

Dell Streak to come in some cool packaging

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2010

It’s not confirmed that this will be the actual packaging for the Dell Streak in the US, but if it is, we like it. Looks like it comes in a nice acrylic casing, which is a lot nicer than the usual boring packaging. However using more plastic isn’t cool for the environment.

If the features on the side of the box are accurate, this device will be headed for AT&T’s 850MHz 3G band. Some of those specs include Android 1.6, 5-inch 800 x 480 pixel touchscreen Gorilla Glass display, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, HSDPA/HSUPA, Bluetooth 2.1, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a VGA front-facing camera.


Dell uses renewable bamboo in product packaging

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on November 18th, 2009

Dell uses renewable bamboo in product packagingCompanies are starting to get more into environmental packaging. The latest is Dell. Dell gets just a little greener by adding bamboo in its product packaging portfolio. And they are the first in the PC industry to do it.

It applies to all Dell Inspiron Mini 10 and Mini 10v netbooks shipped from today onward. Bamboo is used as product cushions cradling the Mini within an outer box that is made from 25% post-consumer materials. Starting early next year, Dell hopes to expand their use of bamboo packaging to a wider range of it’s products.

Super packing gel puts bubble wrap to shame

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on February 4th, 2009

Check out this great innovation in the world of packaging. Shown at the Nepcon world expo in Japan, a company named Sealedair demonstrated the ‘Pack in instance’ packing system. It looks like a perfect way to pack delicate items for shipment and it can be used no matter what product or box size you’re working with.

Just insert the packing material, inject the gel and you have a perfect mold of the object where it rests comfortably. It may just be the future of packing materials. I assume the real trick would be to make it cheap enough to be affordable to use.

Sony declares death to clamshell packaging

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2008

We’ve all had our encounters with clamshell packaging, so it’s nice to hear about manufacturers that abandon the practice. Sony did just that this week, even though this video is pretty lame. Sony is just one of several big name companies that have pledged an end to this wasteful, destructive packaging.

As we reported last month, Amazon took a stand of their own. Other companies are getting on board too, like Microsoft and Best Buy. Once they start saving money on packaging, maybe Sony can make a better video, or give their workers a raise, but in reality it will likely go straight into the hands of the guys at the top. Then they can feel all good about themselves when they too ask for a bailout. To help the little guy of course.

Posted in Amazon by Conner Flynn on November 3rd, 2008

Amazon intros “Frustration-Free” packagingThis is news to our ears,fingers and teeth. Amazon is questioning the necessity of those rage inducing hard plastic containers that can presumably stand up to bombs and the jaws of life. They’re actually doing something about it. Starting today, consumers who are tired of fighting with this evil packaging can opt for products in Amazon’s “Frustration-Free Packaging,” which offers streamlined packaging that often includes recyclable cardboard.

19 products are currently available in friendly containers from companies like Fisher-Price, Mattel, Microsoft and Transcend. They have hopes of offering their “entire catalog of products in Frustration-Free Packaging” within a few years. Hopefully others in the gadget world will join in on this.
