Our buddies over at TechRepublic have a nasty habit of cracking open perfectly good gadgetry, just to see what's lurking inside. Sometimes they even get it to work again afterwards. But cracking open iPods is not for the faint of heart. They'd already lost one Apple iPod nano to the Cracking Open process. Did the fourth-generation iPod nano survive their prying?
This nano is taller and thinner than the previous generation. The media player is also well-built and difficult to crack open, but that didn't stop them from trying -- even if it meant sacrificing the device's ability to operate.
