What makes an iPad tick? These guys will tell you

April 2, 2010

Come Saturday, while many of you are enjoying your new iPad — doing a little e-reading, perhaps playing a game — Kyle Wiens and Luke Soules will be ripping theirs apart.  Not because they are crazy or angry or anti-Apple. No, Wiens and Soules do this for a living: breaking down gadgets using heat guns, suction cups and other tools to get inside and have a look around. What do they find out? The design and components that make it tick. Read all about it in a Special Report by Gabriel Madway.

Below are the guys who will make the magic happen, plus a shot of their workshop.
