'[OT] Nerds in Hong Kong'

We have a couple of days stopover in Hong Kong and was wondering if
there were any "don't miss" places of interest to the more technical
types.
I'm not out to do component shopping, but I'd hate to get back and find
that we missed something of interest by one street.

Steve.

Take the subway (MTR) to the Sham Shui Po station and follow the signs
toward "Golden" or to "Apliu" (Duck) street.

"Golden" is wonderful.  A block wide shopping mall three stories tall with computer hardware and software.  Don't get caught smuggling the $10 Windows XP across the border.

When you get finished with Golden, take a ferry to Lantau Island, get a trail map at the Silvermines bus station and go walking.  Spectacular mountains, amazing temples, good exercise, fresh air and a relief from all that nerd stuff.  I met the Engineer who designed that little orange mouse lever in the middle of the keyboard at IBM out on that trail.  Oh and you must buy a hat and bring a water bottle.
Ask around about a café run by some South African guys, it is a hard half days walk or a quick bus ride from the ferry terminal.  BTW almost everybody on Lantau Island speaks English.
If you run out of dough there is a youth hostel on Lantau Island where you can stay for $6 a night.  Very idyllic and peaceful, no roads to it, just a path.  
Skip the Giant Buddha, it is too grandiose.  Find a temple tucked into the forest and walk to it, try their goats milk cheese.  Bring back a few scraps of hell money with you, if you walk around a while you will understand what I mean.
