Nothing’s changed since 2007
If you lined up every cell phone ever made, you’d see a distinct difference in the way cell phones looked in 2007 compared to phones today. There were two devices launched in that fateful January. The first was presented on January 9 by Steve Jobs, in his famous “golden path”. Since 2004, Apple had been developing devices with 1000 or so employees, and they put them on the US market on June 29 of that same year.
