The Ware for November 2016 is a Link Instruments MSO-28 USB scope. Congrats to Antoine for the first guess which got the model number correct, email me for your prize!
The Ware for October 2016 is a hard drive read head, from a 3.5″ Toshiba hard drive that I picked out of a trash heap. The drive was missing the cover which bore the model number, but based on the chips used on its logic board, the drive was probably made between 2011-2012. This photo was taken at about 40x magnification. Congrats to Jeff Epler for nailing the ware as the first guesser, email me for your prize!

I like this one because not only is it exquisitely engineered, it’s also aesthetically pleasing.
Sorry for the relative radio silence on the blog — been very heads down the past couple months grinding through several major projects, including my latest book, “The Hardware Hacker”, which is on-track to hit shelves in a couple of months!
