"Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything."
With those words Apple CEO Steve Jobs began his keynote address at Macworld San Francisco on January 9, 2007. In typical Jobs fashion, he went on to say that Apple was introducing "three revolutionary products" that day. The first was a widescreen iPod with touch controls, the second was a "revolutionary mobile phone" and the third was "a breakthrough internet communications device."
They were, of course, three products rolled into one: the iPhone. And the rest, as they say, is history.
