"No product in the computing age compares to the iPhone in terms of societal or financial impact. Few products in the history of the world compare. We may never see anything like it again — from Apple or from anyone else."

The only miss on Jobs' keynote was saving "internet communicator" for the third "product." When he uttered "phone," everyone nearly died, but "breakthrough internet communicator" took the air right out of the room.

"Revolutionary mobile phone" should've been last.

gruber is jerking himself off a bit (he really rewatches this thing often?) but he's not wrong. it was and is a revolutionary device, and according to horace deidu, it's the most popular product ever.

steve said it was a world-changing day, and he was completely right.

The knife is coming. The iPhone 9 will be able to gut a fish or dress a boar.

Nice retrospective, but what about the future? If the iPhone was really "once in a lifetime", that's not great for Apple's future share price.

Well, the wheel. The house brick. Paper. The printing press. The match. The internal combustion engine. The television. The desktop computer. The ACTUAL telephone.

The iPhone is surely the most incredible new product to be released in our lifetimes. But let's get this in perspective - what it did was put a lot of pre-existing inventions in our pockets. The iPhone has given us a huge amount of convenience that we didn't enjoy before. But saying 'few products in the history of the world compare' to it is fucking insane.

But that's exactly why we come here. For the nutty Felcherlols

Jesus, you people bitch if he just links to someone else's article with a short blurb and you bitch when he writes an opinion piece (yes, opinion... meaning he's trying to get across his own point of view or feelings about something, not trying to convince you that he's right and you're wrong.)

I have to wonder why some of you even come here to begin with? Do you enjoy exposing yourself to things you don't like? I don't get it. Fuck off already.
