This is the first post on the Take-it-Apart series. Whats in all those awesome (or boring) electronic equipments/devices etc. I started this because of two things.
1. Inspired by Take-it-Apart website.
2. Got bored back home in KSA and opened up a lot of stuff. Had to do sometihng, so documented the whole (time wasting) activity.
3. I could salvage a lot of useful electronique parts even out of old obsolete devices.
So have fun and wait for more upcoming twits
Note to enthusiasts: If anyone has time please have a look at the IC list given with each device and send in/comment how they work so others can have a good idea how the thing works.
EDIT (2010): I have not opened a lot more devices recently.
