iPhone is Time Magazine’s Invention of the Year

Five reasons why the iPhone is invention of the year:

  1. Apple takes design seriously. Most companies don’t bother with aesthetically pleasing products. For Apple, it’s not just about the ease of use and feature but also how a device looks. They make products that makes you proud to show it around.
  2. Using the most usable pointing devices: your digits. Touchscreens are nothing new. They been in almost all devices: phones, cameras, computers. However, it was Apple who found out a way to make using a touchscreen the best method of using a device. Flick, pinch, tap. No other device in the market that came before the iPhone was closed to giving the user a sense of control and delight when using a device.
  3. The iPhone challenges the status quo. Cellphone makers in the US were at the mercy of the the telecos. Apple challenged this convention by dictating the terms and what the iPhone should be like. AT&T is also said to be paying $18 per subscriber per month to Apple because of the iPhone.
  4. Real OS under the hood. Even though the iPhone runs a stripped, slimmed down version of the Mac operating system, it’s still is the Mac OS. Already a powerful platform, it’s going to become better with the release of the iPhone SDK by February next year. 
  5. The future is bright. The iPhone with all its glory is still a 1.0 product. There is still a lot of room for improvement and Apple is not the kind to rest on its laurels.
