What's in a Galaxy S4? A whole lot of easily repairable parts, it turns out. The fine folks at iFixit recently got their hands on Samsung's smartphone flagship and wasted no time in tearing it asunder. Scoring an eight out of ten on the repairability scale, the GS4 puts up little defense to tinker

You've seen the outside of what the new iMacs look like, but do you know what's inside them? If you guessed \"lots of tiny components,\" you win!
