I'm putting together a slideshow of stories, and ideally photos, of broken technology.
You know, like a cracked laptop screen (and the story of dropping it), a keyboard that doesn't have seven of its keys (and how long you tried to use it that way), the power supply that burned up (and your desperate attempt to save your term paper as it was nearly on fire). Tablet deaths, swimming iPhones, smoking fax machines... I'll take it all.
The stories are the fun part, but if you have a photo too then that's even better.
This is a fun little project I've wanted to do for a while.
So leave your story in a comment below. If you have a photo, just let me know in the comment and I'll contact you directly using the email address you provide when commenting. If I publish your story in the slideshow, I'll include your name as given in the comment.
(Just so we're clear, I'm not talking about "broken" as in a BSOD or some other software issue. I'm after beyond-repair stuff, for the most part, and the unique stories that always tend to accompany them.)
