It does have an SD slot, If you look inside. It's amazing how professional the aluminium contact paper makes it look.

It's not an iPhone, it's a new Newton that happens to have ipod and phone capability.

Cover. 4: Let the ramen steep for three-ish minutes, and enjoy your new s...

It does that every time. That was actually the third or fourth time I tried it when I took the picture.

I don't think so, it seems almost too perfect to be a glitch. My guess is that the developers put it in.

Double-A's, or DULble-A's?

I was experimenting with using AA's to power my NOAC, which didn't seem to be enough (memory artifacts all over during games), so I plugged in my NI-MH battery with the AA's still plugged in. http://static.flickr.com/116/301268303_3a39d5b27d.jpg I then reset the system, and it worked fine. http://st...

Well, if you want one of the best macs ever, I'd go for an SE/30 (Although I doubt that will fit your needs).
On a serious note, follow sgtpepper's advice. The silver G4 tower is old enough to be cheap, and still modern enough to work with most of the things you would need to do.

and I still get the hum. Do I need a bigger cap?

@CTFan- Yes, it's at the right voltage, and it appears that I have enough amperage (the system works)

@timmeh- Where would I put the cap?

Battery Hum

I'm still working on my NESp (albeit very slowly), and recently wired it so my battery and power supply can be connected at the same time. When they are both connected, I get a hum through the audio channel.
If it matters, the battery is a NI-MH
Any Ideas why it does this or how one might fix it?
