The iPhone is an incredible feat of engineering today. Remember what we had 10 years ago? Now, think about what cool tech your grandfather grew up with. Or even your father. By todays standards, those things are.. well, crap. Huge TV's with bad image quality (not to mention the "no colour" part), and cellphones which basically were suitcases. Colour revolutionized the television. And then the lcd screens came, and they became slim. And big (in the way that counts). Touch has changed the phones together with big screens on a small platform. Of course, advancements in technology as in processing power have played it's part, but it isn't speed alone that changed. When you have grandchildren, 20-40 years from now, how would they view the iPhone? What technology changed the game, and if Moore's law is to be believed, would they even have the patience to watch it boot? And yes, I actually do find this interesting.
