iFitit has them, although they are ruinously expensive. I expect they'll come down over time.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).

You can replace the SSD in the current Macbook Pro: https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/M...
I suppose you could in theory upgrade the RAM though, but I don't count any Mac upgrade solution that requires re-soldering anything.

Ew. For you, sir: http://store.sealshield.com/all-products-c8.aspx
Lots of people fail at preventing SQL Injection. Lots of people who really ought to know better: http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/search-results?query=SQL+Injection&search_type=all&cves=on
This isn't magic, and it's no replacement for a good secure software development program, but it's a fair bit better than nothing.
I have a feeling these things are going to sell out fast - hopefully the Foundation was able to accurately predict the demand, or can ramp up production quickly.
Translation: I'm really excited about this, and suspect a lot of other people will be too.
Yes, precious, we hates them. We hates them forever! Nasty little interfaceses.
A what? Oh wait, I think I remember hearing about those...they don't make them anymore, do they?
Yes. Then you run into a bunch of Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey-stuff.

At least there will be some stress relief there...
That joke stinks.
Why do you bother? I mean, your screen is lit, and surely lights up your keyboard....
Yes, yes, most people need papers or books or something as they work, I know. But more seriously, a low-wattage LED task light might be more efficient & less annoying.
I'm lucky to have a private office, and the overhead lights are almost always off. It's just a personal preference, but I keep a number of smaller, softer, perhaps more power efficient lights on, to make the space more attractive.
I would like to draw your attention to the second definition at the link you posted, "of little or no practical value or meaning; purely academic."
You should be able to inhibit sleep w/o a special program - just set it to Never in Energy Saver in System Preferences.
I can't help much with the lid, though I recall hearing something about running them closed with a keyboard, mouse, & monitor attached, so there may be a way.
There may not be quite as little cross-over as you think. I know at least some of the Resistor folks are hams, for example. And the TAPR license is one of the better known Open Hardware licenses; Open Hardware being a related movement and TAPR being a group that concentrates on digital amateur radio.
There is some culture clash, I'm sure, as there are individuals we're talking about. Although IME, both groups are very welcoming to newcomers.
You probably won't find hackerspace types rag-chewing on HF much, but doing cool stuff on VHF+? Sure.
If you know an ARC and a hackerspace community in close-ish range, have you tried introducing them? Maybe try to work with both groups to get a fox hunt on, or something.
