The iPhone is 10 years old

Generally regarded as one of the best product launch demos of all time, Steve Jobs launches the iPhone just ten years ago today. It was not released until June that year.

I remember getting one a few months after it came out and being disappointed that things like ‘Cut and Paste’ weren’t an option. It was the only iPhone I ever owned. Ten years later, Apple has more cash than most countries and would have a GDP amongst the world’s 50 richest nations.
