Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Kevin Mitnick (Technical Editor) is the most famous computer hacker in the world. Since his first arrest in 1981, at age 17, he has spent nearly half his adult life either in prison or as a fugitive. He has been the subject of three books and his alleged 1982 hack into NORAD inspired the movie War Games. Since his plea-bargain release in 2000, he says he has reformed and is devoting his talents to helping computer security.

4.0 von 5 Sternen something for every hacker 2. März 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
While this book might not have helped Kevin Mitnick evade the FBI (contrary to the brazen front cover citation), it will help you to earn the respect of your techie and non-technical friends alike.
Hardware Hacking is an inspiring handbook of hardware modifications. It's pages are filled with step-by-step photos, labeled illustrations and reference material (there's even an intro-to-programming section in the back!) You'll learn how to change the battery in your IPOD (and save yourself the costly service charge), to get stereo sound from your old Atari 2600 and to upgrade the memory on your palm. It's a great repository of handy hardware projects for experimenters of all levels.
Chapter three (page 47), for instance, describes how to "declaw" a CueCat. For those in the know, a CueCat is a special barcode scanner Radio Shack used to give away (to motivate signing up for a paid-service.) Some time later, the CueCat company folded and hackers discovered how to modify the scanner to scan ordinary barcodes. I sent off a few emails to friends until I rounded up a couple old CueCats (eBay sells them for a couple of dollars.) A few cuts with an Exacto knife and a little soldering later, I was the proud owner of an unencrypted output barcode scanner. I then used Amazon's API to barcode enable the open-source software program OpenBiblio. Now, when I get a new book, I simply swipe the CueCat across the bar code and instantly OpenBiblio retrieves all of the book details such as the name, title, summary, author and even a photo of the cover. That information is then stored away nicely into a searchable database. It's been a great way to manage my growing library of books - all thanks to a hacked CueCat.
If you are interested in "going under the hood" of your electronic equipment, then this book might well be up your alley. It's light reading, and the explanations are very clear. Have fun hacking!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Hard core hacking 20. März 2004
Von W Boudville - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The subtitle about voiding your warranty is only half joking, if even that. Most of the projects/hacks described will probably do just that.
To the tinkerer in you, perhaps the best allure of the book is the chance of serendipity. Surely some hacks will not be of interest, or not relevant to you. The latter may be in part because the authors provide hacks for a wide range of hardware; from a recent Playstation 2 to the venerable Atari 5200 (which dates from 1982) to 802.11 to an iPod and others. So if you lack an iPod, say, and have no intention of getting one, then the chapter on it may be purely theoretical. But the sheer range of hardware increases the odds that there will be somethings to pique your fancy.
The final chapter sticks out. It is not a hack but the modicum of programming. A minimal walkthrough to let you get the gist. But if you find that this chapter is new to you, perhaps you should either pick a hack that does not require it, or consult a programming book for more comprehensive coverage.
The 8 (!) authors and presumably you seem to be hardware fanatics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding Book from the TRUE hacker's viewpoint 18. Februar 2004
Von roamer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I received this book today and can only say "Wow!" This book embodies the true meaning of hacking, a term that has been used and abused for so long it's TRUE meaning has been completely distorted.
Joe Grand, and the other authors, have taken many everyday items that many of us have laying around the house and demonstrated ways to modify and improve them...this is hacking.
Moreover, after reading this book and trying some or all of the hacks out, you will want to start investigating other items you have that could possibly be modified and improved.
A book that both informs AND stimulates thought? Absolutely. Finally, authors that understand what hacking is, and aren't afraid to admit it...in fact, they embrace it.
Five stars, an absolutley fantastic read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good stuff for the experienced hacker.. 21. Oktober 2004
Von Thomas Duff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If you're the hard-core type that likes to take things apart and "fix" them, you'll like Hardware Hacking: Having Fun While Voiding Your Warranty by Joe Grand (Syngress). Your discarded toys will never be quite the same again.

Chapter list: Tools of the Warranty Voiding Trade; Electrical Engineering Basics; Declawing Your CueCat; Case Modification: Building a Custom Terabyte FireWire Hard Drive; Macintosh; Home Theater PCs; Hack Your Atari 2600 and 7800; Hack Your Atari 5200 and 8-Bit Computer; Hacking the PlayStation 2; Wireless 802.11 Hacks; Hacking the iPod; Can You Hear Me Now? Nokia 6210 Mobile Phone Modifications; Upgrading Memory on Palm Devices; Operating Systems Overview; Coding 101; Index

The first thing to know about this book is that it isn't a beginner's volume. There is some serious hardware modifications going on here. You should be comfortable with electrical theory, devices such as resistors and capacitors, and tools like soldering irons. Also, I'd recommend that you don't try these things on primary devices. I'd say there's a decent chance you could damage it trying some of these tricks. But having said all that, you'll enjoy the book if you meet the above qualifications.

Since I'm not a major hardware geek, I don't know that I could do many of these mods. One of the mods that would be useful even to non-geeks is the chapter on the iPod. You will learn how to replace the battery and how to upgrade the hard drive on your earlier generation iPods, and you don't even need to be that handy. That tip alone would probably pay for the cost of the book. Each hack is very well illustrated with excellent photos and instructions, so you don't feel like you're reading assembly instructions written by something that was run through an automatic translator.

So if you have some old video game consoles gathering dust in the basement, pull them out and see what you can do with them using this book. You'll end up being the envy of all your geeky friends. :-)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Major Hardware Hacks for the Hacking Inspires 28. Dezember 2004
Von Dale F. Farris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The book contains 15 amazing projects that range from the truly useful to the legendary and wacky. You'll learn how to connect toasters and coffeemakers to a network; upgrade radio-controlled cars and talking toys such as the Furby; and build car-mounted periscopes and home video arcades. You'll see how to turn a classic Mac machine into an aquarium and harness ordinary batteries to power your laptop. You'll learn how to build an intruder-detection system for your office cubicle and how to track remote objects as they move around. There's even a project for hacking a 12-story building to use its windows as elements of a huge display screen.

Each project includes step-by-step instructions that even a novice hacker can follow, while also providing the necessary detail to satisfy an experienced hacker. The knowledge gained by building each project can easily be applied to your own projects. If you are unfamiliar with basic electronics, you'll find sections that teach you how to use the tools of the trade; you'll also learn how to read schematics and do basic soldering.

So, whether you're an electronics hobbyist who likes to learn by doing, a software hacker who wants to learn how the other half lives, or a neophyte who has only dreamed of hacking, "Hardware Hacking Projects for Geeks" will inspire you to tinker with all kinds of gadgets and gizmos, and will serve as a jumping-off point for new and clever hacks.
