As usual, iFixIt did their best to tear down the latest new gadget – the Motorola Xoom – the minute it was released. It’s taken a while before the iPad received any significant competition from other manufacturers.
The dudes over at iFixit just love to rip stuff apart. Now, on the launch day of Microsoft’s much anticipated Xbox 360 Kinect peripheral, they stripped one of these set-top gadgets down to its bare essence.
Just a day after Apple’s reveal of their new MacBook Air, the guys over at iFixit have already done their teardown of the 11.6-inch version, splaying the guts of the 21st-century aluminum marvel for all to see.
Those crazy cats over at iFixit are always tearing stuff up. If I break stuff, I tend to get in trouble, but when they do it, seems all of geekdom pays attention. I like getting to see what is inside the controllers and there is surprisingly less stuff inside than I expected.
The latest victim of gadget spare parts seller and repair shop iFixit is none other than the iPhone 4, its naughty bits splayed out on a table for all the world to see – like its *gasp* vibrating motor.
It didn’t take long for those crazy guys at iFixit to tear down a Nintendo DSi XL. Heck, it was only released in the US yesterday! What took them so long?
Sure, it was released a few months ago in Japan, but unless you’re a hardcore Nintendo gamer, playing all those games in Japanese doesn’t really interest me much.
Nintendo’s current handheld has mutated over the years (as their handhelds are wont to do), from a hefty brick Phat model to the sleek lines of the latest iteration, the DSi. That latest system celebrated its US debut this week, and already the poor thing has been stripped, her guts revealed in a greedy technological orgy of discovery.
