I read a lot of techie sites. One common theme that runs through them all is the "unboxing" ritual whereby someone documents, by photo or video, the act of opening the box of a new device. I'm not sure where this trend began, but apparently it's the Next Best Thing to Being There for those of us who'd like to be the person unboxing said device.
Well, if this sort of pictorial essay floats your boat, you're in luck. I found a link to the unboxing of an OLPC XO-1 laptop.
Enjoy the photos, and remember that from now through December 31, you, too, can arrange to unbox an XO-1.
