year of the iphone

Todays Science Week Ireland Question:

In your opinion what was the best invention in 2007?

Answer: iPhone.

What Apple are doing to phones now what they did to mp3 players in 2001.

Back then there were mp3 players on the market, but they were for the technical savvy user. Apple succeeded to simplify the device, make it stupid-proof and available for the mass market. Now everyone can use any mp3 player and there is a market awash with choice.

Fast forward to 2007 and they are doing the exact same with phones! Simplified, pretty, stupid proof and everyone wants one. There are smart phones out there that do the same as the iPhone (except the multi-touch interface) and more!

In a few years the iPhone you know now will be as old and useless as a 1st Gen iPod!


  1. I'm guessing your shaking your fist at me because i mentioned the iPhone as an Invention, when you believe it is a product!

    A Product is anything that can be offered to a market to satisfy a need or want.

    An Invention is an object, process or technique which displays an element of novelty.

    The iPhone can be class as both. Your opinion of the ZymeQuest Blood Simple Machine can also be classed as an invention and a product as it will be offered to the market to satisfy want or need!
