Oh, poor Eee PC 900. You haven't even made it into most people's hands, and already you're getting dissected and inappropriately inspected. Honestly, we didn't mean for that to rhyme. Regardless, the folks over at bit-tech have gone to all the hassle of cracking the little dude open, though what t...

We're actually kind of surprised it's taken this long for us to get a solid look at the guts of a new Zune 8, but we suppose it gets pretty distracting up in the social. Anyway, the fine folks at RapidRepair have done the honors, and there's not much hiding in there of note: the battery appears to...

Flickr user *nathan takes the idea to a whole new level with this "faceless" iMac. Where did the computer go indeed. "Faceless" posted by *nathan. If you'd like to see your own...

The images aren't incredibly hi-res, but they should be good enough to keep you from doing the same to your zippy new iMac. [via MacDailyNews]...
