A new book buy Andrew "bunnie" Huang has just arrived called The Hardware Hacker: Adventures in Making and Breaking Hardware. This looks to be great read. Bunnie is the maker of such products as the much loved Chumby (we had one), the opens source computer Novena and others.
"Huang's journey starts with his first visit to the staggering electronics markets in Shenzhen, with booths overflowing with capacitors, memory chips, voltmeters, and possibility. "
"Hardware, says Bunnie Huang, is a world without secrets: if you go deep enough, even the most important key is expressed in silicon or fuses. His is a world without mysteries, only unexplored spaces. This is a look inside a mind without peer."—Edward Snowden
