It’s hard to believe 10 years have passed since Steve Jobs stood on his stage and told the world a little device in his hand would change the world.
No one had any idea how right he’d be. While many reviewers remained skeptical and bashed the price point, Lev Grossman from “Time” saw the future. “Look at the iPods of five years ago. That monochrome interface! That clunky moving touchwheel! They look like something a caveman whittled out of a piece of flint using another piece of flint. Now imagine something that’s going to make the iPhone look like that. You’ll have one in a few years, and it’ll be cheaper, too. If you’re not ready to think different, then think ahead.”
Here’s how the iPhone has changed our lives:
- It put the internet in everyone’s pocket.
- It made photography go from a hobby to everyday life.
- It changed how we work.
- It changed the way people get software. Thanks App Store!
Happy 10th Birthday to arguably the most addictive piece of tech ever invented! We wouldn’t have it any other way.
