The Null Device

A company named Netpliance sells a flat-panel Internet terminal named the I-Opener for US$99; this device can only connect to a special (premium) Internet service. However, it's based on a cheap PC chipse. Some enterprising hacker has figured out a way of hacking it into a Linux box, adding a hard disk in the process. Or, if QNX is enough for you, you can get root on it with only a PS/2 keyboard. (via Slashdot)
