re: iPhone Through The Years: Visual Tour
Isn't it a tad hyperbolic to write an article about the iPhone "through the years" when the goofy thing was introduced in 2007?

Jeez, the level of mawkish obsession with the iPhone is beyond explanation.

re: iPhone Through The Years: Visual Tour
"Consumers barely noticed."..... ARE YOU KIDDING?!? More than half of the people I know that have had iPhone 4 NOTICED the antenna issue...

I love how biased these notes are for the slide show. NOT.

Here, have another glass of the Apple cool-aide.

And how is Siri revolutionary, if Apple had to buy someone esle out to acquire and roll it into their product?!? I thought Apple prided themselves in creating everything from scratch, going against the flow of "industry standards"??

Don't get me wrong, the iPhone is a "fun" device for the masses, but it is not THAT great.
