Apple Exactly five years ago today, Apple officially released its entry into the mobile phone market, the iPhone. Immediately loved by customers the world over, ridiculed by the competition, and, in my book, not particularly innovative feature-wise, it changed the mobile phone industry virtually overnight. Love the iPhone or hate the iPhone, its industry-changing impact is evident.

Mobile browsing was in its infancy, Facebook and Twitter didn't exist yet,


Do you live in an alternate reality? Because in this one Facebook started in 2004 and already had a pretty good momentum in 2007. Twitter launched in 2006.
Both well before the iPhone launched.

I'm not talking about the EXACT 2007 moment the iPhone launched - but the period before it.
