This was an announcement which started to change lives of many people all over the world. Today smartphones are indispensable e.g. for all the refugees to find their way from Africa to Europe. We learn that social media and mobile devices entail risks but also life and hope.
This is a day I’ve been looking forward to for two and a half years.
Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything. One is very fortunate if you get to work on just one of these in your career. Apple has been very fortunate that it’s been able to introduce a few of these into the world. In 1984 we introduced the Macintosh. It didn’t just change Apple, it changed the whole industry. In 2001 we introduced the first iPod, and it didn’t just change the way we all listened to music, it changed the entire music industry.
today, we’re introducing THREE revolutionary new products. The first one is a widescreen ipod with touch controls” The crowd goes wild. “The second is a revolutionary new mobile phone.
And the third is a breakthrough internet communications device.
An iPod, a phone, an internet mobile communicator.
An iPod, a phone, an internet mobile communicator …
these are NOT three separate devices!
And we are calling it iPhone!
- Thankfully we have manufacturers (predominantly Asian companies) whose devices are affordable for the poor.
- Europe, help the poor and weak people from Syria and other African countries. You cannot close your eyes any longer.
Btw, enjoy the Apple event on Sep 9, 2015. Secrecy has gone, but excitement is still there.
Thanks for dropping by.
