Hah well here is a couple videos, NOT NEW (THEY ARE FROM ABOUT 1 YEAR AGO) BUT I had never posted them on my main MaximumRD channel before today. I just uploaded them and so I share them here today. Another cheap ANDROID GAMING tablet, I love my previous JXD units but this model is by a company called GPD. What I find in general with these various cheaper import tablets is there is generally always something that is lacking. Compared to my JXD this unit seems to have a screen that is easier to scratch as well the WiFi connection seems weaker. That said for actual emulation and gaming they are pretty sweet with built in controller buttons and Dpad etc. Anyway here is an unboxing of the GPD unit followed later by a flashing of the default ANDROID firmware, this is something I do with all of these type of devices as the default firmwares while serviceable are often lacking compared to alternatives made available by homebrew developers like Skelton.

Forgotten Video! Unboxing the GPDQ88+/Q89ANDROID Gaming tablet! One of a couple videos that I had never gotten around to posting on this my main channel. OK actually it IS the GPD Q89 but at the time of ordering I was expecting the Q88+, Willgoo seemed to take a long time to ship but it worked out as I ended up with this slightly upgraded Q89 model. Anyway, here is the unboxing in part #1 which I will immediately follow up with a Custom Fimrware Flash in part #2. Thanks for watching!

Forgotten Video! GPDQ88+/Q89ANDROID Gaming tablet! Flashing CFW. One of a couple videos that I had never gotten around to posting on this my main channel. Here you will see me Flash the Default ROM with another of Skelton's awesome custom Android Firmware's , yes I decided to do that as they are always an improvement IMHO and better than the custom stock firmware typically shipped with these cheaper import tablets.

Back with a brand new video! Honestly my first video in a LONG time I have put effort into. Wanted this one to be special for all the classic competing fans . A tour of the U.S.S. Midway's Navigational computers featuring Univac, tape drives and ancient storage technologies. 

 

 

Here I was touring the U.S.S. Midway while visiting San Diego last year and I thought what an excellent opportunity to share some amazing old school computing tech. Here in the SINS (Ships Inertial Navigation System) Room I show you the tech that did amazing things (Univac, tapes drives, LOL memory oh my! ) despite being so underpowered. Also a display of some memory and storage options throughout history. Hope you enjoy, I wanted to branch out somewhat and this is the result.

Yep finally a new video, nothing too special but still a little fun. It's short so have a look. 

 

Description - Published on Oct 21, 2016

Contrary to popular opinion I AM NOT DEAD lol. Here is proof that I am still alive as I take you for a little stroll to the ELECTRONICS RECYCLING BIN to see if there are any goodies. Much to my surprise I drop the camera while filming DOH! Share in the adventure! OK not much of an adventure but still a bit of fun and hey you can check out the beautiful October scenery on our property.

It's 77°F 25°C here and I'm on the beach. Watching this video makes me want to go to British Columbia! I could use a brisk fall day and some beautiful brown leafs.

If I lived in your complex, your videos would go like this:

 

"I need to get down to that recycling bin before that weirdo in 11G does!  That guy is always poking around there looking for good junk.  Sometimes he drags his kids down with him and calls them both 'Lamont'.".

Sanford and Son.  Whenever I collect old junk with kids in tow, they get called Lamont.  That's a Dad rule.  This still applies, and they are 17 and 20 now.

Good to see you are still alive and well, Max.  Glad to have you back.  While it wasn't a "dumpster" for electronic recycling in a place I lived over a decade ago I took the trash out to the apartment's dumpster and found a complete computer system in there.  It wasn't dirty, it didn't smell, so I grabbed it up thinking if it did work I could return it, right?  It fired right up, I didn't have to do anything.  It almost looked like it had never been used and Windows had not finished installing.  By now that computer would have been about 10 years old, then it might have been about a year old if that.  It was an e-Machine with AMD processor.  Really nice.  I just can't believe someone threw it out.  I ended up using it until I moved out of state in 2009.  Some of the things people throw out is amazing.  I don't normally dumpster dive but seeing that computer and been needing a new one ... yea ... I dove for it. ;)

Thanks to a generous subscriber I actually have a new video to share! Unboxing some classic gaming donations from Jason Rotbergs ! :) If you want to skip my pre-unboxing ramblings feel free to skip to around the 6 minute mark ;) (still plenty of rambling during the presentation though!)

That's the weirdest thing, I've had that "Everybody Knows" song from King of Kong stuck in my head all day long and your video starts with that in the background.

 

Great unboxing Rob! It's great to see you making new gaming videos  :wreck-it-ralph:

Coolest video ever! GREAT find Rob! That's just incredible! I always thought one day you'd find some cool power strips in the recycling or something, but it's amazing that you found something this awesome of a retro gaming collectable!

 

Does video exist of your walk out to the recycling bins and making your big discovery?

Sadly, no I did not have my camera with me, both  old and new don't hold the charge they once did and I do not always have them plugged in and ready as I mentioned I literally checked it as an after thought. I did make a video yesterday when I first came up stairs etc, but it was using my older camera (and by good I mean well at least better than my other one :rofl: ) but after I calmed down and re-watched it today I thought it better to just do over. This video was better for sure though I admit my attempt to power it up and my disappointment when it did not work initially might have been entertaining. But yeah, I was certainly surprised, the majority of residence here are 50+ so I find a lot of weird things but thinking now we might have (or had :() someone more like me here somewhere ?  :lol: I am certainly convinced to try and ave a peek in more often. For all my little gadgets and accessories I been finding perfectly good AA and AAA batteries! Even rechargeable, enough to keep things going without me having to pick any up, also universal remotes, I will never need another!  :beer:
