looks like very much like one of the "he-fogs-the-mirror-so-I-guess-we'll-let-him-finish-the-residency" types we waved on through back in the day.

Yeah, laugh all you like — he's the one who'll be holding the mask over your face the next time you're scheduled for surgery.

What lies beneath: iFixit's go-to tool for opening Apple products

Screen Shot 2012-10-16 at 12.01.05 PM

I read with fascination iFixit's account of its opening and exploration of the innards of the new Gen 7 iPod nano.

$2.95 per set (Gen 7 nano not included).
