I used to love to open things to see what inside. Since I droped my Nokia N71 and it bursted itself, I tried to put them back and I successed after 2 days but the main camera never work anymore. Beside if you open your phone or iPod, the warranty seal will be broken. I just try it when I don't use it anymore.
lol. I have a tendency to do that to my stuff too...well, after I don't need it anymore atleast...(^_^)
There's not much inside, huh? Well, now reassemble it!
somewhat but people like him do it for me! lol
So much for your warranty...
i think its a waste of money Truthfully
yes, yes i do.
but i don't do it with my own products, because people do them online for me ^_^
Someone took it apart already! I'll never do that!!
Definitely nono. I'm not so rich to take something brand new apart and risking damaging it!
I've always wondered how they were able to fit in all the features into one slim package. I have to admit, I'm no apple fan but they make beautiful devices. now if only they don't lock them up.
Perhaps one of my older hobbies, I used to open up my handheld games if they seemed broken. I do fix appliances or other household objects but, not much. Main reason is that my dad doesn't fix anything and it'll just stay broken.. so, I give it a try ^^;
I'd never do it with an iPhone though.. not that advaned XD
I can usually out them back together and I only take apart old/broken devices
Why in the name of all that's holy would anyone take apart an iPhone 3G? I recently bought the LG Dare which I'm sure is a lesser phone in comparison and there's still no way I'd take it apart.
Oh well. To each his own. Or her own, as the case sometimes be.
>Do you have the "must-see-inside-electronic-device" fetish?
No, but my brother has. The great thing is, that he can put things back together again:) And he is also able to repar them.
yes I do! but I can't...sob...
These guys called into Leo Laporte's 24 hours of coverage. I was amazed that the first thing they did was disassemble the phone. I'm pretty sure they can put it back together, but still. They didn't even play with it first.
itz probably made in a sweat shop somewhere in china
I know about Blentec for a while, just seeing this article reminds me that those guys would do same thing to the new iPhone.
nah those blending guys blend everything apart.
it's like they are the bane of technology or something
that's what they teach us at the uni...don't let the smoke out.
Some will even use crazier methods to take one apart:
...so thats the harmful smoke that comes out of a BlendTec Blender when it blends a gadget..
Me too... Well, I ended up fixing mine but had to replace a bunch of parts... One of those "Don't try this at home" gone bad things.
I wouldn't risk opening something that expensive and new up haha, I would probably forget how to put it back together or something ^^
same here, I'm happier playing with it then taking it apart
LOL I don't dare touch expensive electornics... If it's some cheap thing I won't wind though... If it is cheap and it belongs to friend, then I really won't mind >:)
Oh thanks for the info... Interesting stuff...
Err... what fetish? *puts back iPod together* I don't know what you're talking about! *puts cellphone back together* I'm just fixing them, that's all! *puts car back together* XD
well the magic smoke is embeded during the manfacturing.. and doesn't come out till its dead.. this isn't dead.. unless the blue smoke came out when they disasimbled it.. then its a paperweight..
Hope he knows how to put it back together XD
I'd be more interested in pinouts and direct hardware benchmarks. I wonder how well the 3G's last-gen ARM11 stacks up to the new OMAP3 line. :O
So... it doesn't run on magic or children's tears afterall.
Yeah same here, I'm an electronics student, I've seen better ones too but that's some freaking tech there going on, like from an other world, soo much different from things we're working on as a student.
Hmm, it has a surprisingly small number of "big" parts.
looks simple yet complex...
heh, you beat me to it. Although I only remove the clothes.
I don't do it with electrical gadget but I do with mechanical ones, like watches, music box,...
It doesn't I have the degree in engineering I should take it apart and reassemble it after close inspection. I can't afford to damage my stuff or make the warranty void. =_="
This suddenly came to mind after reading this thread...
Q: What do you do with the girl after she finally become your girlfriend?
A: Disesct her.
I've taken some classes where I had to design and build simple electronics. After looking at that, my mind just broke when I figured out what exactly what it needed to do with whats there. I'd explain it but it took two years to learn what I know about software and electronics so I'll put this simply. Its like they took a full grown elephant and stuck it in a jar a peanuts.
at the very least, they are not throwing the toy, wrecking, hammering it in front of people who's queueing for them.
well.. there went that waranty.... :(
same here lol!
That person better not sneeze or all those screws will disappear...
that's a lot of screws
Nope i don't unless the device is going to be scraped.
i did that too my PSP and some function dosen't work anymore xD
cool guy!!!! i like it!!!
Nope, don't have, i like them as they come, no need to undress my poor iTouch... it would prolly be embrassed too, poor thing. >< *hugs it*
Q:What is the first thing that you do after lining up 18 hours for an iPod 3G?
A:Take it apart...
Do you have the "must-see-inside-electronic-device" fetish?
