We certainly like our gadget teardowns around here. One thing you can count on shortly after a new smartphone or other cool gadget is launched is that someone will shortly after that launch tear their device up so we can see what it’s like on the inside.
Such is the case with the sexy Droid 2 Android smartphone that launched recently. I bet there are still folks who want one that haven’t got it yet, but iFixit has already taken the smartphone and ripped it to shreds. The smartphone has lots of parts.
I can certainly understand why people would want to go with a pre-paid mobile service rather than a service that locks you into a contract. That way you can leave if the service sucks without paying out the nose. Boost Mobile is one of the bigger pre-paid firms out there and has a new handset coming soon.
The new handset is called the Samsung Seek. Boost says that the device is its first touchscreen phone with a slide out QWERTY keyboard as well. The handset will be in Boost retailers and online on August 25 for $149.99.
We love anything to do with Star Wars here at Geeky Gadgets, and what could be cooler than having a mailbox designed to look an X-Wing fighter. Graig Smith created this cool mailbox about five years ago,and it measures five feet long an has a five foot wingspan.
This retro electric chess set design was created by Brent Blake (pictured below) an American architect, design consultant and competitive chess player.
The simple yet innovative design uses plug bases, sockets, bulbs and ceramic elements as its main components. For the chess pieces transparent, coloured and clear bulbs become the typical pieces, instead of relying on shape
and form, colour is the distinguishing factor.

This Tank Track skateboard is just a concept at the moment, but wouldn’t sure like have one? I know I would.
Designed by Bryson Lovett the tank track skateboard is totally removed from the traditional mechanics of a skateboard I doubt it will ever make the light of day as a production item. But I am sure Tank Girl would definitely be riding one if they ever did.
