The fifth generation unit features laser marks on the device and a double line of holes for the speaker.
This unit was the first iPod touch to feature the lightning connector as well. Previous stages of the same unit feature legacy 30 pin dock connector. ImageImageImage
The sixth generation unit features holes on the chassis to allow easy access to RF interfaces on the main board and battery logic board. It was likely used by FCC as part of the model compliance validation process. Image

1/5 Today is the 15th year anniversary of the #iPhone shipping- WOW! Reflecting back on my time with #Apple and working on 18 generations of the #iPod and the first three generations of the #iPhone is truly special. The nostalgia is real.
2/5 When we were creating the #iPhone- we were solving for a pain. You had to have a phone, #iPod, and computer with you if you wanted to do anything mobile.

Pain = grabbing all that gear and taking with you

Painkiller = iPhone

Superpower = the display
3/5 The #iPhone was a painkiller to address a really big market need. There has to be a market need! Remember that! I learned the hard way that creating without a market need or society being ready doesn’t always go so well i.e. watch 🐇 @generalmagicmov

1/ Steve Jobs said #innovation is "saying no to 1000 things" before saying yes

For more than a decade, Apple has used Pablo Picasso's Bull to drive home the lesson

Thx @TrungTPhan for this!
2/ In Dec 1945, Picasso created "The Bull", a series of prints

With each successive one, a bull is simplified & abstracted. Picasso's goal was to find "spirit" of it

Apple employees are taught this philosophy

3/ Below is the 1st, 4th & last print

Picasso's bull progresses from:
a realistic drawing
to a deconstructed image (abstract)
to a lines outlining the bull's shape

Thread on: Foot In Mouth: Selected Quotes From Big Corporate Execs Who Laughed Off Disruption When It Hit

$AAPL #iPhone
“We’ve learned and struggled for a few years here figuring out how to make a decent phone. PC guys are not going to just figure this out. They’re not going to just walk in.” -Palm CEO Ed Colligan in 2006

“The dev. of mobile phones will follow a similar path to that followed by PCs. Even with the Mac, Apple attracted a lot of attention at first, but they have remained a niche manufacturer. That will be their role in mobile phones as well.” - $NOK Nokia’s Anssi Vanjoki

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Dear #ISP and #internet & #tech companies.

Now that the #netneutrality vote has happened, here are my rules as a #consumer and #Customer that I will use to decide who gets my dollar bills.

1>$ I will be subscribing to the services and providers who voluntarily maintain the closest model of #netneutrality.

If @Comcast starts charging for prioritized services, I will not only opt for the cheapest and most basic plan possible...
2>$ ...I will move to any other #ISP that maintains fair and open access. I will move to a new neighborhood if I must.

I can go back to cellular or satellite internet, or 1995-style #dialup if it means supporting fair and open access providers. 96kb #ISDN? I'm lovin it.
