While I was just about to hop into bed for a comfy early morning sleep, I received the dinging tone from my iPhone that I had received an email.  I decided to check it before lying down and much to my surprise there was a message from iFixit saying they had a teardown of the Apple Tablet.  In what was thought to be the iPad teardown was instead a dirty trick which turned out to be iFixit tearing down an Apple MessagePad 2000.  In what we can only imagine to be preparation of the iPad teardown, iFixit has taken apart the old Newton MessagePad 2000 for all to see.  See the full four page teardown at iFixit.  Now I am off to get some sleep….That was just mean.
