Believe it or not, the iPhone has been on the market for 10 years! To mark the occasion, tech journalist David Pogue reunited with the three other journalists who were given pre-release review iPhones by Apple: Steven Levy, Ed Baig, and Walt Mossberg. Although the iPhone would end up changing the world, that wasn’t apparent at first. “After three days, I was ready to throw this thing out of the window for trying to type on glass,” Mossberg quipped. But has Apple run out of steam since the debut of the iPhone? Baig rose to Apple’s defense. “How often can you come out with something that changes the world? I mean, we’re all unfair, perhaps, in the media sometimes. Oh, they haven’t had a hit lately. Well, who else had a hit lately? It’s not an easy thing to do.”
