Sony dash unboxing

I picked up a Sony dash at Best Buy today.  I’ve been waiting for this to come out since I heard about it from CES.  I have posted a few pictures of unboxing it below.  When I first plugged it in it showed an intro video which I proceeded to skip.  It then searched for wireless networks and after finding mine it asked for the security key.  After connecting it said there was a software update available.  It updated the software from version 1.0 to 1.7.  After it restarted I started browsing the apps from the dash.  When I tried to select one to add it said I had to go to sony.com/mydash to register first.  I went online to set up an account.  The dash gave me a 4 digit code that I used on the website to register my device.  Once that was completed I could add apps from the website or from the dash itself.

So far I really like it.  I have it set up to show my friends flickr photos but it seems to only show a few of them on repeat.  I also have to see if I can get the flickr app to stay active.  It keeps cycling through the apps I have on the device.  I think it is going to take me a while to figure out all of the features.  It came with very minimal documentation so I have a lot of exploring to do.
