From ArsTechnica:

"Tape and strings literally made Surface."

Panos Panay, general manager of the team behind the Microsoft Surface, touches an old mockup made of black and white plastic. He's forgetting glue, certainly – two panels appear to have been hot-glued to form the "tablet" part of the device — but tape and strings really are two key ingredients in this prototype, the one Panay's team used to show off what Surface would look like. It's crude and fragile, but it's also unmistakably Surface.

Cutting a nano SIM for the iPhone 5
Mobile Devices

The new iPhone 5 has presented a small problem for some new owners because existing SIM cards are too big for it.  The iPhone 5 only accepts the new smaller SIMs.

So, Giffgaff have successfully trimmed down a MiniSIM card to NanoSIM size using a pair of scissors. They've tested their smaller SIM in an iPhone 5 and claim that it works just fine.

You would risk damaging your SIM if you were to attempt this, but if a large SIM is no longer of use to you then the risk may be worth taking.

You can read about it here, and take a look at this guide here.
