Re: TechInsights LOL!

A hilariously out of place peice of silicon - they'd probably find that fantastically amusing, sadly.

TechInsights These are a great mix of hilarious and disgusting. I'm having a hard time believing the human head, but perhaps a finger (nail?) at least. We should ask the teardown experts over at UBM TechInsights to weigh in on anything surprising they've found too. (But it might just be a Samsung processor in an Apple product!!)

Re: Polly grip For some reason this reminded me of the OSP vendor who sold cabinets that were pre-marked with graffitti in hopes of preventing further damage.

Steve, you had me on the first few.
