Most of us store our old, broken laptops on our desks, under our beds or as door stoppers - without spending much time considering more innovative, artistic or geeky ways of housing and using our once beloved machines. Not the case for the folks over at the Chaos 2.0 blog, who turned an old iBook with a faulty screen (as in not working at all) into a server.
While the handy folks from the Chaos 2.0 blog warn they take "absolutely no responsibility for any destroyed iBook," they are featuring a fun Do It Yourself guide on their site. I don't have the time or guts, but if you do, I want to see it! Have you created something geeksugar worthy, been to a geeky museum exhibit recently or run across funny gadgets while traveling? Share your photos, news, reviews and tips with me and I'll feature my favorites on the homepage. To learn how to post your finds to the Geeky Things I Love, read more
