    The long and short, this is from ARS Technica after the iPhone was released and includes Steve Ballmer's comments about how it was going to fail. Suffice it to say, the iPhone lasted longer than Ballmer!

    But just as good is the comment from the ARS writer, Joel Hruska, who said:
    Ha, ha, the joke's on you Joel!

    Any other "good" comments from 7 years ago?

    Well, to their credit, it did have problems gaining significant market share at that price point, hence the $200 price drop a couple of months after launch.

    Not entirely. That did change with the subsidies. Now everyone and their mothers and daughters have one as a result.
