    It's not uncommon to see the folks over at iFixit take a brand-new device and, without hesitation, disassemble it to show us what it's made of. Today, however, things are taken a bit - okay, a lot - further. They've teamed up with Chipworks, who have taken Apple's latest A6 SoC, hit it with an ion blaster and other technological wizardry, and have given us a first-hand look at all that the A6 is comprised of.

    Though Apple would love to be as self-sufficient as possible, both its A6 processor and other on-board components have been sourced from third-parties, such as Murata, Qualcomm, Elpida and even a hint of Samsung.

    Oh man - I'm so glad I wasn't taking a sip of something or eating when I saw that post. :D
