7 years old

for those of you who may not know, the now ubiquitous white earbuds and the iPods attached to them had a birthday this past week. yes, it was Oct. 23rd, 2001 that the iPod as first introduced to the world.


the first video is a promo video made by apple about that first iPod. (iPhone link: Original iPod Introduction)







this next one is the introduction of the original iPhone a year and a half ago and then one person's wait in line at the NYC 5th Ave store.







it's remarkable to me just how far we've come in the last 7 years. now with my iPhone 3G, i have all the innovations of the original iPhone plus the new App Store with thousands of programs from games to social networking to productivity software. it's just so awesome! plus the phone, internet, email, iPod, and so much more. i wonder what cool toys we'll be saving up our money for in 7 years from now?

do you have an iPhone? what are your favorite apps (free or paid)? after some use what's made it to your "home" screen? here's a screenshot of my current home screen:


you'll notice that neither the phone or the email app made it to the dock at the bottom. i simply use the camera and twitterific more often.

do you not have an iPhone? are you sick of people talking about how great they are? or are you wishing you had one too?
