    I was browsing the 'ol archive and found an old thread talking about the possibility of apple making an iPhone and wow. It's like going into a time machine. The lack of vision people had when you think about the actual product that came out is astounding.

    Back then people had no vision, no ideas.

    Now people have ridiculous ideas like making your iPhone fly and get you breakfast from McDonalds. (Obvious exaggeration ;))

    It's nice to see things from the beginning of time, before they were even released.

    :rolleyes:

    Haha, good find. It's easy to forget now just how much the iPhone really shook up the mobile phone world and how really astounded we all were when jobs first demo'ed it.

    The first reply in that thread hit the nail on the head. Same exact story with the iPod :rofl:

    I remember two articles from before the original iPhone launch (I wish I could still find the links). One was about several other phone manufacturers who pooh-poohed the idea of touchscreens for phones. The other one was from a group that supposedly had a prerelease iPhone and was shocked that it only had a battery life of about twenty minutes. That worried me a bit. :D
