    Is it just me, or does anyone else cringe when people say "hack" about anything involving changing code on a computer?

    Nice. I like it. Not much use though, but you gotta flex those creative brain muscles somehow.

    It`s not about how useful it is, it`s about learning new skills for when you have a real problem to solve. Cool and cheap development board too, I`ll have to get one.

    At the risk of pissing off Ayn Rand, I NEED THIS!

    Also, this ad worked. `Cause that`s what this is, for those of you that are confused. An awesome ad.

    hmm, cool but not very practical.

    all that just to find another word for awesome and it takes up a USB port and is laying around.

    too pessimistic? :S

    I am so glad that someone is promoting the use of different words. This is could have been useful twenty years ago. I have asked young people for other words that have the same meaning as awesome and all I get is a blank stare.

    Not really a "hack for techies" so much as it is a beginner-level hardware mod demo.

    Video was well done, informative, and concise, though most of IAB isn`t the target audience for this.
