I have mentioned the Urban Dictionary before. I subscribe to its daily delivery of a word definition a day. Sometimes they are pretty obscene and sometimes pretty useless but every few days a really good one comes along. Today we had the word Bricked meaning -
To render your computer useless, as useless as a brick.
Usually the result of tampering with the insides and doing irreversible damage. Bricking your hardware leaves you with a new paperweight. Can be the end effect of a faulty flash or [firmware] update, a [modification] (mod) gone bad or being struck by lighting, to name a few.
