Among the many joys of running your own company, a certainly interesting one is the ability to open up stuff once the hardware stops working.
A weird accident yesterday left our Mac Mini a little zonked out and it just refused to power up. When there was no hope left that we would see it working anytime soon (The Apple Store takes 4 days to update an OS, this would have certainly taken up a month to fix), we decided to open this thing up. I realize that a hundred thousand people have done this before, but this was certainly the first time we opened up the little monster.
Here is what it look like, once you open it up.
Not that any good came of it though (we’re looking for somebody who can fix it now!), but we were able to appreciate the inner beauty of tiny piece of hardware evolved by Apple. Maybe it will provide the inspiration for us to do something that has never been done before.
