Stuff Introduced Since the Original iPhone in 2007
The original iPhone (2007) – these are now all the rage in North Korea!
Yesterday, Apple unveiled it’s 10th anniversary iPhone – the iPhone X. The original iPhone, released in 2007, was a stunning achievement and the smartphone revolution it spawned has changed the world. What sort of other notable tech achievements have been introduced since the iPhone? Here’s a list of some – please use the comment section to add any you think should be on this list. In no particular order:
Instagram – a bigger deal the younger you are!
Twitter – it helped elect Donald Trump!
Snapchat – I don’t understand the appeal of this one.
Uber – who knew so many people wanted to be taxi drivers?!
Romphim – the future of men’s fashion?
Large Hadron Collider – confirmed existence of the Higgs Boson and didn’t create a black hole that ate the Earth as some predicted!
Tesla – super fast and sexy electric cars! Not sexy? Well Elon Musk begs to differ. Tesla currently has the Model S and Model X. They tried to call the Model 3 the Model E but Jaguar sued them. So, they went with 3 because it looks like an E. After the Model 3 will come the Model Y. Those four models spell “S3XY”.
Kindle – I can fit my whole library in the palm of my hand!
Netflix – been around since 1997, but on-demand video-streaming was a post-iphone phenomenon. Without netflix there would be no “netflix and chill.”
Spotify and subscription streaming services. Most all of the music in the world at your finger-tips. Life changing.
Self-Driving Cars. Getting close but not there yet! Autonomous cars will have a HUGE effect in the future.
airbnb – Hey – can I sleep on your couch?!
Voice activated personal assistants – becoming less frustrating to use with every update!
And, finally, arguably the most significant discovery our species has made in the last few hundred years (or maybe ever):
CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing. Will cover in an IFOD soon. AMAZING!
