10 Years Ago the World Saw the iPhone for the First Time

Today marks 10 years since the announcement of the first iPhone. We take it for granted now, but it's astonishing how far mobile devices have come in just 10 years. If I think back to my cellphone situation in 2007, I was using a Virgin Mobile phone to send texts for 10 cents a page to my girlfriend who went to another school. Fast forward to now where I can facetime my wife for free over wifi from Atlanta and not miss a beat?! That's pretty damn astounding. 

I posted the original keynote because it reminded me of a time before the iPhone and really brought to light just how much this technology has impacted our lives. It's also hilarious to hear something like touchscreen phones to be referred to as "magic." Check it out below. 

Do you remember your life before smartphones?
