    Writing to a read-only (ROM) socket

    http://bitchin100.com/wiki/index.php?title=REX_Overview   Now, granted, the 68k does not use a multiplexed address/data bus, but - does this stir any ideas?

    What makes the 68k processors so cool?

    Over at SegaRetro is the best reasonably noob-friendly explanation I've discovered yet of the powerful features of the 68k family, why programmers and system builders were drawn to it, and the shortcomings of the 68000 which were addressed in later models in the series...

    PPP to Wifi module in a Newton (and maybe others?)

    Listing this under Hacks rather than Newton, because it seems like it would be usable on a lot of older machines: Giving Wifi To An Apple Newton - Hackaday   {bolding mine} The module itself is called the Nano WiREACH SMT OB G2. It has some other interesting features, like DHCP, optional...

    Unlocking "smart" batteries (Thinkpad example)

    Thought this article on Hackaday might inspire or suggest some possible attacks on those SMRT Powerbook batteries that sometimes won't play nice when re-celled.   Unlocking ThinkPad batteries

    USB roll-up drumpads / piano on OS X

    This is probably of interest to about two people here, including me, but anyway. You know those cheap roll-up USB keyboards and drumpads you see around the place?  Someone got around to writing a Mac "driver" for them. http://www.insightful-schmidt.info/dreamcheekymusic/ I say "driver"...

    Finally, an Intel

    In which Bunsen joins the 21st century at long last. So I was driving home the other day, and noticed I was in the general vicinity of a branch of Cash Converters I hadn't visited for a long while, and had some spare cash in my bank account for a change. I dropped in to have a random look at...
