Submission + - Cracking Open the Nostromo SpeedPad n52 (com.com)

Homr Zodyssey writes: As part of their "Cracking Open" series, a contributor over at TechRepublic has disassembled a Nostromo SpeedPad n52. While the articles in this series don't really give a lot of technical details, they can be quite entertaining for the technology voyeur. They allow you to inspect the innards of some electronic devices without running the risk of destroying your own treasures. Past articles in the series have deconstructed an iPhone, a DVR and a PS3, among others.
