Innovation, creativity, productivity, ubiquity.
Perhaps best defined by events that occurred ten years ago today.
A single decade, a BILLION + units, 13 models, 395 sold every minute, 101 million users in the US alone,
Still hard to fathom…
Steve Jobs and Apple launched the iPhone on January 9th 2007.As Apple says:
At Macworld 2007 in San Francisco, Steve Jobs introduced the world to iPhone as three products in one — “a widescreen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone and a breakthrough internet communications device.” In the ten years since, iPhone has enriched the lives of people around the world with over one billion units sold. It quickly grew into a revolutionary platform for hardware, software and services integration, and inspired new products, including iPad and Apple Watch, along with millions of apps that have become essential to people’s daily lives.
