I just bought myself a new Zen Nano. Even thought the built in microphone is crappy, it's good for playing mp3s, is very compact, and I was eager to get it out of its plastic packaging. You know the kind. Hard to open. The Nano was sealed inside as if inside a time capsule. Well, I learned something. Looking for the packaging's weakest point, I used a pair of scissors to cut right around the edge of the packaging. Bingo! Open sesame!
So the next time you have to open what seems like impenetrable plastic packaging, the kind that is commonly found around diminutive electronic equipment, try cutting around the edge.
I am here to say it worked for me.
