We consider upper bounds of the Riemann zeta function on the 1-line and demonstrate a link with the maximum of the function S(t) - the remainder in the formula for the number of non-trivial zeros of height t in the critical strip. In particular, we show that a conjecture of Littlewood on the maximum of \zeta(1+it) follows from a folklore conjecture on the max of S(t).
