An anonymous reader writes: Weird, weird, weird! A Gizmodo reader called Mr. Johnson (yes, apparently it's his name) underwent a vasectomy to get an Apple iPhone, following wife's orders after a roadtrip with his kids to Boise, Colorado.

Submission + - How to tell if your Xbox 360 will break (blorge.com)

fdmendez writes: "In reality there's no 100% sure way to tell if you're Xbox 360 is going to break, but you can find out if you're machine is one of the consoles likely to go sour.

Here's how it breaks down: In response to a staggering rate of failure for the 360, Microsoft decided to fix the heat sink issue with its console. The earlier Xbox 360s tend to lack the new heat sink, and the older Xbox 360s tend to have the new heat sink.

If you're console doesn't have the new heat sink, there's a good chance you're going to witness the red ring of death soon, but, if you're curious as to whether your 360 has the new heat sink, Ben Heck has the deets on how to tell without voiding your warranty and all you need is a digital camera."
