Hacking hardware and hacking into computers can work together and it’s good for all Admin to be aware IMHO. I have hacked wireless cards so I can attach an antenna so I could extend the range of Kismet, etc... I have seen some interesting hacks on laptops that have turned them into some very efficient pentesting equipment. But this of course is all computer related. However, understanding hardware hacking in general does give you some insight to the mentality of a lot of computer hackers. The Ec-council claims that to understand a hacker you must think like one.
