Book Review: Hardware Hacking: Have Fun While Voiding Your Warranty
Sunday, Apr 25th, 2004   |  Read the Full Article

I was impressed by the the depth that was gone into with the Electrical Engineering Basics – which is basically electronics. But it’s a good brief overview in a way that an interested person can get a good background on electronic devices (resistors, capacitors, diodes, transistors and integrated circuits) – that alone makes it worth having on a bookshelf for an aspiring tinkerer. It’s also got a good C/Assembly language primer at the end of the book. The projects themselves were interesting – I had no idea that the Atari 2600 Game consoles were actually designed to have speakers built in (I tore up my old Atari 2600 back in the 1980s, trying to find parts to beef up a Vic-20. I obviously didn’t find anything…).
