The first iPhone keynote

It's funny now see these things which we already take for granted, being presented as brand new.

And there were many people who said it would fail, simply because it cost $600. What a limited and dull view on the world. This was like the first Ford T: expensive and a bit slow, but a revolution, and boy, did people want it.
(The first iPhone, like the first Mac, had some limitations: it didn't have copy/paste, there were only Apple's own apps for it, it didn't even have 3G, and the camera sucked. But no bird flies fully grown from the egg.)

(I'm still on the fence about the iPhone 5, btw. Dang. So many nice details, but nothing really definitive.)
