Steve Jobs: Billion Dollar Hippy

Broadly considered a brand that inspires fervour and defines cool consumerism, Apple has become one of the biggest corporations in the world, fuelled by game-changing products that tap into modern desires. Its leader, Steve Jobs, was a long-haired college dropout with infinite ambition, and an inspirational perfectionist with a bully’s temper. A man of contradictions, he fused a Californian counterculture attitude and a mastery of the art of hype with explosive advances in computer technology.

Spire: Legal Siri Port On iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPod touch 4G/3G (Legally)

How To Get Siri Legally On iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPod touch 4G/3G With Spire

A lot of people were expecting something big from the iOS dev community around Christmas, and like so many other instances, they have not disappointed all the iPhone jailbreak users across the world. A few hours ago, Spire was released, which is a legal port for the much-awaited Siri on unsupported, legacy devices. The world fell in love with Siri as soon as it was released alongside iOS 5. As it was among the most obvious distinguishing features of iPhone 4S, users of older iPhones, iPad and iPod touch wanted it on their devices straightaway, but turned out that it wasn’t legal to port Siri to any other device because of the encryption used in iOS 5. However, with the release of unencrypted keys in one of iOS beta firmwares around Christmas, all such limitations went down the drain, and thanks to the developers of Spire, it is possible to legally use Siri on jailbroken iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G and first gen iPad.

iPhone 4S Camera Manufactured by Sony

Chipworks definitely has some fancy equipment inside their labs. They took apart one of their iPhone 4S units this morning (using our teardownfor guidance, of course) and tossed the 8MP camera directly under an infrared microscope to find out the manufacturer.

The infrared microscope allowed them to look through the whole structure down to the base layer. They saw die markings several layers below the surface.

So what did they see? S O N Y.

The pictures below are of the Sony designation inside the camera. Note that the camera itself is significantly smaller than a dime.

"Sony" spelled out nice and clearly

Think Different

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify and vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

‘You’ve got to find what you love’ – Steve Jobs


This is a prepared text of the Commencement address delivered by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, on June 12, 2005.

I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal. Just three stories.

The first story is about connecting the dots.

I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?
