Teardowns I've Worked On
I'm quite irritated with Apple for not providing a slot for a second 3.5" drive. They're the masters of Tight Squeezes; they clearly could have shuffled things around slightly more to add a second drive bay.
A gorgeous media computer like this simply craves twin terabyte drives running in RAID.

A nice deconstruction as always.
Hahaha step 23 had me in stitches... the Apple logo now serves as a secret antenna for wifi.
How sly of Apple.
Just a thought... My Unibody Macbook Pro has a fairly enclosed design where is the wifi antenna inside?
If it's anything like the original Macbook Pros, which I used to be a technician for, they wrapped the antennae cables around the edges of the screen. Since those screens are now 100% glass, I wouldn't be surprised if they left the wires there since it's the only part of the system not made of aluminum!
What's the name of that supposedly standardized slot? I've only ever seen Apple use it; I recall it was the same in the previous two revisions as well.
You're kidding me; they haven't added in even N support yet? I know that most routers these days are at least G/B compatible but even so...talk about cheapskates.
Are the chips in the 3G iPod touch SLC or MLC?
So is the speaker in the 3G touch much higher quality than the one in the 2G? I have a 1G, and have always been jealous on principle, but after hearing the actual audio output from the 2G speaker, I was kind of nauseated.
