  1. Hmm, wonder if he could also get an iPhone to fit in the slot for the floppy drive? ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

  2. You sound a bit more like Spock… a real kill-joy.

    Maybe a bluetooth keyboard? Maybe just slide it out enough to hit the home button? Or maybe he put a micro paper-clip sized hole to stick a paperclip in to hit the home button… really bring back that nostalgia of manually ejecting a disk.

  3. What really would have been a nice slide show, is if he had some step-by-step pictures of how he did the mod to the Classic. But overall this is such a cool idea, especially with the wireless keyboard suggestion above.

    Ha! That brings back so many memories… trying to get my damn Zip disk out while the drive goes crazy on my beige G3!

    In the words of the great Steve Jobs… look how far we’ve come.
