Can you believe it was only 7 years ago today that the iPhone transformed our world?

  • Seven years ago, nobody browsed the web on their phone.
  • Seven years ago, nobody used the word "selfie".
  • Seven years ago, buying a stand-alone MP3 player made sense.
  • Seven years ago, buying a stand-alone GPS was common.
  • Seven years ago, we weren't all staring into our laps at family gatherings.

The iPhone and all the many devices from Apple and others that have followed have transformed our world. Happy Birthday, iPhone.
