Torture-testing the Nexus 10 tablet Video Transcript
-Oh, hello. I'm just enjoying Ice Age on the Nexus 10 tablet in beautiful 16 x 9. Where this tablet really shines is watching stuff because, man, that aspect ratio is rad. Dig the tablet. But, you know what I was thinking? Could this handle an actual Ice Age? Ice Age in the ice box. Brrr, cold to the touch. Let's see this bad boy. No problem. It turned right on, no delay whatsoever. Wooh, five new messages. I got a lot of messages while it was in the freezer, like, "Hey, it's cold in here," and "brrr." It's time for the heat test with the Nexus 10. You know what? I think I'm gonna add the pizza. That's some weirdness. That is definitely some weirdness. I guess we just have a slice of pizza and wait for this thing to [unk] and see if whatever is happening on the screen is contagious. This one doesn't seem it wanna turn back on. That, my friends, is a fail. So, I recant my fail. It's back. It just needed a little bit of TLC, a little reset action, and some downtime. And it's working fine. I'm reading here on the bath. Oh, oh, my phone went off. Bad things. Oh, God! Oh, Jesus! Oh, jeez! Oh, that's not good. Turn it off. Turn it off. That will be out of the tub and deal with the situation. All right, well, we're gonna pack this thing in the rice overnight and see if that will do it. It really wasn't in the water long. I guess I don't get to read tonight. If only there was some nonelectrical version of reading. Starting, right? I'm sure it's fine. I'm sure it's no problem to my-- But it is usable. It is still working. So, that's, you know, quite good. I'm at the park for some frisbee action. The Nexus 10 is still operational, though admittedly, very dim. So, you might have to just take my word for it that the screen is on and active. I can get it past that rock right there. I wanna go for it. Oh, yes, I got it past the rock. Still on, orientation changed which as it should in flight, but it's still working fine. We got some serious hazards on the course, but I think I can get it past that other rock. Ready? -All right. -Oh, it slipped out of my hand. Ooh, I think we may have lost touch sensitivity. I'm turning it off. Oh, it doesn't wanna turn off. I think it's time to move to the swings. I feel like enjoying a nice leisurely day at the park, finishing up my reading of Tail of Two Cities on my Nexus 10 tablet. But, then, you realize, "What? It was the best of times and the worst of times." That was a pretty good swing, I gotta say. I do say so myself. And no cracks. Some scuffing on the back, but no cracks. That's a pretty great drop test. If you can get over some minor headache-inducing rolling, I think you can still enjoy some reading, some movies, and a lot of multimedia on your Nexus 10 tablet even if you choose to use it as an ultimate frisbee device as people on Twitter evidently want to. Nexus 10. This is really good. Too bad I'm getting an aneurysm [unk].
