Happy 13th Anniversary to the iPhone

Episode 1761 (02:41)

Gen 1 iPhone

Thirteen years ago, Apple introduced an Internet communicator, iPod, and a Mobile Phone, known as the iPhone. Three devices in one. Leo says that smartphones were a struggling category at the time, attempting to go up against the juggernaut known as Blackberry. With the iPhone's launch, the smartphone's place in technological history was secured, and Blackberry is just a footnote.

Today is also the 20th anniversary of Wikipedia, the online Encyclopedia. Leo says it's the one thing on the internet that is truly good. There's no advertising, and it's incredibly valuable as a crowdsourced resource of information. It's also replaced the Encyclopedia as the first place people go for information.
