lovehate videoblogcast 01: The UN-unboxing of my first cell phone (for Andrew Currie)

The first cell phone that I ever, sort of, owned was Motorola's brick-like flip DPC 550.

Since I don't do unboxings, I thought I'd present this homage to all that do, and especially send a retro shoutout to Andrew Currie who writes at (@acurrie). I'm hoping that Andrew can give me tips on how to hack this thing into a bong, a nuclear device, or something else cool like that.

Also, I found a groovy 2 minute commercial selling this phone in about 1989 or 1990. I only wish I was as cool as the people in the video.
