Time magazine has published in its latest issue a list of the 50 most influential gadgets of all time, the iPhone is at the top. In the list cameras, drones, smart phones and even televisions are included. The reason why the iPhone is the most influential gadget is because it is the device that changed the way we relate to computer and information, in addition to popularize mobile applications and have a smart design.
iPhone was the first company to put a truly powerful computer in the pockets of millions when it launched the iPhone in 2007. Smartphones had technically existed for years, but none came together as accessibly and beautifully as the iPhone.
Apple’s device ushered in a new era of flat, touchscreen phones with buttons that appeared on screen as you needed them, replacing the chunkier phones with slide-out keyboards and static buttons.
Another product of the company that is listed is the Apple Mac in third place. He qualified through that meets the standard for the way in which humans interact with this type of computers. IPod, Apple source of success and inspiration of other products such as the iPod touch has the ninth place in the list.
Other products you got a place on the list were the iPad and iBook. The iPad took honors for being “radically different” than other tablets predecessors and achieved 25th place in the list, while the iBook, the first laptop that offered a wireless network stood at number 38 on the list.
The product’s reveal was a classic example of Steve Jobs’ showmanship at its best. While loading a webpage and showing off the computer’s display at 1999’s MacWorld conference, the Apple co-founder lifted the computer off its table and walked across the stage. The crowd roared in approval. In a gesture, he showed that Wi-Fi was here to stay.
For these situations, Apple has a place not only in the memory of the media who were present at the time of presentation of the products, which are today living history of Apple, but the millions of users that carry Apple as the brand of your choice, innovation and differentiate the factors that made the rest of companies.
