It was today, January 9th of 2007 that Apple introduced the iPhone, the smartphone that would go on to revolutionise the phone and carrier industry.
Apple’s release of the iPhone 4 was marked by a lot of controversy over the antenna “death grip” issue that led to call drops. The backlash was so strong that Apple had to organise a press event to address concerns. The event was kicked off with a funny song by songwriter and singer Jonathan Mann about the whole “antennagate” issue.
We knew from Steve Jobs’ biography that he didn’t like Android much, and that he wanted to “destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product.” According to a new book called Dogfight, Jobs didn’t like former Android head Andy Rubin much either, calling him a “big arrogant f**k.”

The house where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first Apple computer may become a historical landmark. According to CNN, the Los Altos historical Commission will evaluate the property for its historical value and will decide it deserves to be preserved.
The much delayed Jobs movie, starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs, has finally been released in U.S. theatres to average reviews, with most critics disappointed by the movie’s superficial look at Jobs’ “complex” life.
Steve Woz, Apple’s co-founder, isn’t a huge fan of the movie either, saying that a number of people in the movie were portrayed wrongly, possibly due to Kutcher’s own impressions about Jobs’ personality.
