A few days ago, I told you about a segment that was coming up on CBS “Sunday Morning” that I didn’t think you should miss. It was the 10th anniversary celebration of the iPhone hosted by David Pogue, tech critic for Yahoo Finance.
Pogue explained that “two weeks before the phone went on sale, Apple quietly handed iPhones to four tech reporters to review: Steven Levy, editor in chief of Backchannel, who worked at Newsweek at the time; Ed Baig, of USA Today; Walt Mossberg, the executive editor of The Verge, who was then at the Wall Street Journal; and me, then of The New York Times.”
As the broadcast points out, the world has never been the same after the iPhone was introduced. “We have become a nation of distracted drivers, distracted walkers, and distracted dinner companions.”
In commemoration of the 10th anniversary, the first four people to test the iPhone came together to reminisce.
