A bag of Doritos and some good tunes. That’s all you need really. That’s a good night in my book. Doritos has combined both in the Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 2 promotional MP3 bag. Naturally, since it’s got electronics inside, so somebody had to do a teardown. The fine folks over at Engadget have got us covered.
This special edition bag came out and people paid 30 bucks to their get their hands on one. Engadget tore into the bag to see what was inside. Not surprisingly, it’s a pretty boring teardown. It is basically a cheap, exposed circuit board sandwiched between two pieces of foam. Apparently, it sounds pretty crummy too, but on the plus side, you can jack in the media player’s USB port to your computer and download the soundtrack as high quality, DRM-free MP3 files, recorded at an impressive 320kbps.
The Doritos and the music are the real reward. If you bought one, just eat up and enjoy the tunes. Or hide it away in a closet hoping it will be a collector’s item.
