The older machines were easier to tweak, as rumor has it that the new revisions
of the I-Opener don't have the 2.5" IDE connectors, and aren't setup to be
dismantled. As for OS, they're running QNX. You will also need a new keyboard,
because I think their's is missing something trivial like the ESC key or something.
Other specs I think are like 8 or 16MB of FLASH, 16 or 32MB of RAM, modem, parallel,
and I think it has a Winchip running @ 166MHz.
I read specs and how-to on them quite a while ago.
