De Grisogono has created the Meccanico dG, a timepiece that combines both a mechanical digital time display and an analogue time display. Featuring an elaborately dense cluster of microsystems featuring cam and gear assemblies whose handwound mechanical movement is comprised of 651 components. The upper dial is composed of an analogue display of the hours and minutes, while a digitally displayed second timezone is displayed on the lower dial. Limited to a production run of 177 peices, the Meccanico dG retails for somewhere in the $273,700 range.
My brothers Motorola DCT3416 died, and I figured I would attempt to fix it. I want to start out by saying I know very little about PVR's, other than somewhere buried inside is a standard computer hard drive. While dropping off the DCT3416, my brother informs me that it doesn't turn on, and that it makes this clicking noise. My first assumption is that the HD is corrupt and or damaged and preventing the machine from booting. Replacing the internal HD should produce a simple fix, so lets go about doing just that. Replacing the internal HD is going to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated as the rear of the DCT3416 has 3 tamper proof/security screws, which I do not have a tool for. Instead I used a series of pliers, and 10 minutes later had all the screws removed. Here is what the tamper proof/security screws look like, once removed. I should add that there is also a plastic security tab, just above the IEEE 1394 jacks, which disintegrated when I attempted to
