When visiting the
today, a video automatically appears instead of the usual product tabs for shopping. The video, which is nearly two minutes long, is a montage of Jobs from his early days at Apple to his later years.
The video highlights some of Apple's largest moments with Jobs, such as the unveiling of major products like the iMac, the iPod and the iPhone. Along with soft cello playing in the background are quotes from Jobs over the years.
At the end of the video, a message from current Apple CEO Tim Cook appears:
Steve’s passing one year ago today was a sad and difficult time for all of us. I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place.
One of the greatest gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple. No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself. Our values originated from Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We share the great privilege and responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future.
I’m incredibly proud of the work we are doing, delivering products that our customers love and dreaming up new ones that will delight them down the road. It’s a wonderful tribute to Steve’s memory and everything he stood for.

If any of the electronics inside the iPad Mini is gonna shrink you can bet that Apple will have absolutely 0 to do with it. They do not manufacture a thing, they do not come up with ways to make electronics, they do not create lithography methods to make things smaller they just order parts from companies who can do it. As for the smaller size it is in between an iPhone and an iPad, they already know how to cool an iPhone so cooling a slightly bigger version won't be all that difficult since you will have close to the same tech but more space. iPad Mini is not some techincal marvel, it is a bigger iPhone and sine the iPhone works then the Mini won't be hard to make work.

Incorrect, the A6 is a custom design. They've spent billions on semiconductor companies and the fruits of their labor are paying off. The iPhone 5 has faster performance than any other smartphone out there without compromising on battery life, all before mass availability of the Cortex A15. Everyone, Anand included, assumed that Apple somehow got enough volume of A15s for the iPhone 5. Nobody expected Apple to come out with their own custom SoC.
Before this they were doing a lot of custom design work with their desktop/laptop motherboards and the internal layouts for their prior mobile devices. Nobody had the style of logic board that the iPhone used. That doesn't just materialize out of nothing, otherwise somebody else would have made something like the iPhone before Apple did.
Even their collaborations are driven by what they've needed, things like the custom CPU package they worked with Intel on for the first gen Macbook Airs.
Obviously someone has to implement that design into physical manufacturing, but that's standard for any hardware company.
I do agree that making an iPad Mini isn't hard work, at this point the groundwork has been laid by both the iPhone and the iPad. The only real difference is the size of the display and the battery.
