Instructables member JetricaKerempuh has posted a step by step approach to build a cool tripod for your iPhone. He feels that without Tripod it’s pretty hard (and frustrating) to take any full figure shots.

For this project, you’ll need just few tools and those are —  small screwdriver, measuring tape, pliers, sharp knife, superglue, small awl and iPhone tray.

Materials required are — a hard insulated wire, wine cork,  2 way double light switch,  3 wire rope clips.

JetricaKerempuh has just spend $3.5 to complete this entire project. Got surprised!! Check out here the complete tutorial to build your own Tripod.

Siri allowed iFixIt to undress her like that on the eve of the iPhone 4S launch. iFixIt have let all of the magic smoke out of the latest iPhone. The following are some of the major highlights:

  • As noted by AnandTech, the part number found on the A5 chip in iFixit’s teardown confirms earlier claims that the iPhone 4S carries 512 MB of RAM.
  • iFixit confirms that the iPhone 4S uses the linear oscillating vibrator motor as found in the CDMA iPhone 4 rather than the rotational motor found in the GSM iPhone 4
  • On the outside it looks and feels like an iPhone 4. On the inside they were confronted with a different phone altogether.

There are many more findings that can be seen here at ifixIt page. You can also check out MJ’s video review of the new iPhone 4S here:
