What’s Under the Apple Tree?

On July 9, 2007, Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone to the world at Macworld in San Francisco.

It’s worth the 10 minutes it will take you to watch Steve Jobs at his finest in this keynote speech.

A Revolution that Changed the World

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to make that claim. By every measure, there are already more mobile phones in the world than people. You can find a brief history and timeline of smartphones here.

I’m not sure it’s very healthy … doubtless not as healthy as a robust conversation with your neighbor … but there’s no doubt that smartphones have changed the world. The growth is extraordinary as you can see below.

Here’s how to look for them and what to do if you find one.
