Apple’s iPhone 4S which is going to be released tomorrow has already been used for a teardown. The cool folks at iFixit have disassembled the entire device to reveal its insides.
The battery in this device is larger compared to the iPhone 4 which is used up to support the all new A5 chip. It has also been confirmed that the device sports a 512MB RAM for increased performance. It appears that additional RAM is not required for Siri, and so it is unclear why the iPad 2 cannot support Siri.

Next week, a celebration of Steve Jobs’ life will be held by Apple Inc., said Tim Cook in a memo to employees on Monday. The event will be held on Wednesday, 19th October, at an outdoor amphitheater at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino.
Tim Cook also said,
“Like many of you, I have experienced the saddest days of my lifetime and shed many tears during the past week, and I’ve found comfort in both telling and listening to stories about Steve.”
Steve Jobs always was found in his same uniform at every keynote event, a black turtleneck with Levi jeans, and tennis sports shoes. If you are wondering why he did so, it is firstly very very clear that it wasn’t money-related (ofcoruse), but according to the upcoming biography fo Steve Jobs, here is why he did so –
On a trip to Japan in the early 1980s, Jobs asked Sony’s chairman Akio Morita why everyone in the company’s factories wore uniforms. He told Jobs that after the war, no one had any clothes, and companies like Sony had to give their workers something to wear each day. Over the years, the uniforms developed their own signatures styles, especially at companies such as Sony, and it became a way of bonding workers to the company. “I decided that I wanted that type of bonding for Apple,” Jobs recalled.
Sony, with its appreciation for style, had gotten the famous designer Issey Miyake to create its uniform. It was a jacket made of rip-stop nylon with sleeves that could unzip to make it a vest. So Jobs called Issey Miyake and asked him to design a vest for Apple, Jobs recalled, “I came back with some samples and told everyone it would great if we would all wear these vests. Oh man, did I get booed off the stage. Everybody hated the idea.”
In the process, however, he became friends with Miyake and would visit him regularly. He also came to like the idea of having a uniform for himself, both because of its daily convenience (the rationale he claimed) and its ability to convey a signature style. “So I asked Issey to make me some of his black turtlenecks that I liked, and he made me like a hundred of them.” Jobs noticed my surprise when he told this story, so he showed them stacked up in the closet. “That’s what I wear,” he said. “I have enough to last for the rest of my life.”
