A Fad Worth Knowing About -- "Modding"
Although it's far more popular among gamers who primarily use consoles (such as X-Box and PS2) and superfast PCs (such as Alienware), the act of modification (called making a "mod" or "modding") to one's hardware is very cool among young adult techies. It's replaced the SS, Trans Am and 442 ... in it's own way. This article (link above) shows how one enterprising "modder" retrofitted a new Mac Mini inside an old Mac Plus chassis to create "The Mac Minitosh." Nostalgia for geeks over the age of 30! (Does this mean we've reached the point at which you can't trust a geek over 30?!?)
