The Nexus Q exterior is bisected by a ring of LEDs. It creates a mesmerizing performance.
Any video you want to play through the Q has to be rented or purchased through Google Play.
Setup: Just run the power cable to the wall and connect a pair of bookshelf speakers. You’ll need some banana plugs to make your connections, as the Q has no exposed posts and no way to accept raw speaker wire.
You’ll need a device that can run the Nexus Q app. Tap the compatible Android device on top of the sphere to bring up the Q application in the Google Play store. Install it. To pair with the Q, the app must use Bluetooth — but only for a few moments. After that, all communication with the device uses Wi-Fi.
You can play media only through the Google Play media apps (music and videos) and push YouTube videos to the Q. Nothing more.
It is a novelty device, a very beautiful novelty device. Enjoy
It is a beautiful fall day, and we have solved a major problem.
Our world is becomming increasingly connected and we just HAVE to plug in. The options to plug in are diverse and expensive. What works for one person just will not work for others, since basically we are all different. Case in point is the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.3 inch screens. Who would have known that some people would LOVE that.
Now, most of us would shy away from a purchase like that since it is unconventional and takes us away from the safety of the herd mentality. A lot of us are DESPERATE to try it ONCE and not get locked down with the device price and two year contracts.
So that my readers is the problem that gizmotakeout.com solves.
1. It gives consumers the ability to RENT at a fraction of the retail cost. You get to enjoy the device in the comfort of your home without any bloatware loaded (as is the case in electronics retail stores).
2. It gives you ACCESS to several curated technologies that you formerly would never have been able to experience, save read the ravings in tech blogs.
3. You can compare your existing devices to what you want to get next side by side before you buy finally. Good bye buyers remorse.
4. The new gadget at home feeling accompanies every device.
