Engineering knowledge requires sacrifices be made. This IPAD gave its life so that we could disect its design. RIP.

Indeed. All in the name of furthering human knowledge. Still, every time I read one of these teardown reports, I always think about how many people would love to have the gadget the analysts just ripped to shreds. Someone from UBM TechInsights waited in line for hours to get their bands on this baby. It's a pretty unique line of work.

I would like to see how green is this new iPAD. Also, what about teardown of firmware / software for this new iPad?

Is 4G is already a widely used in America? I believe the extra cost will be taken easily by the apple customers.

typically take few hours... but I am bit surprised they did tear down of silicon as well within one day.

Since there is no price difference in 3G Vs 4G, all new devices are switching to 4G now. Its gaining popularity fast. Service providers are also promoting it since its giving them benefit of larger bandwidth with similar data cap.

it won't take long to tear down silicon if they have a handy grind.

The antennae position seems odd; I guess maybe they applied lessons learned from the iPhone?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
