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.

LTE in the 4S would have chopped its battery life in half. LTE chips were not power efficient, its a big reason why Android handsets continued to get larger. Putting a larger battery in a smartphone was the only way to get get decent battery life out of LTE.
Qualcomm's 28nm LTE chips came out recently, meaning that you don't need to compromise battery life or size in order to get LTE. There are actual practical reasons why LTE hasn't been in an iPhone up until now, they didn't want to make it larger or reduce battery life.

"its a big reason why Android handsets continued to get larger."
Thats just not it... They are larger because people want larger screens. Todays phones do WAY too much (IOS, Android, Winmobile, all of them) to waste it on a tiny screen.
Now we have 28nm chips that take care of the battery drain of 4G and those newest 28nm chip based phones are the biggest of them all, GS3, RazrHD, etc... and they are getting even larger on the next round. The next high end phone is going to be the LG based Nexus with a 5 inch screen. I dont know why its hard for you to get that most people want larger screens.
