Amazon Kindle Touch (2011) Teardown
At the same time Amazon launched the Kindle Fire tablet, it also introduced three new Kindle e-ink readers--the Kindle, Kindle Touch, and Kindle Touch 3G. I've already cracked open the Kindle Fire and 2011 Kindle. All that's left is the Kindle Touch.
For a more in-depth review of the 2011 Kindle's internal hardware, check out my article, "Amazon Kindle Touch (2011) teardown: Replaceable battery, Neonode touch screen."

While I find cracking open hardware interesting at times, I really enjoy the advice/helpful hint videos from TR Dojo. I hope the new name "Cracking Open" doesn't reflect a loss of the (advice and helpful hints) videos.
To see both the image and the image navigation bar, I have to scroll the screen upward a bit. When I select the next image, the screen returns to its original home position. Surely there must be some way to leave the screen scrolled where it was when the new image appears? Other websites seem to do this regularly.
