5 things Steve Jobs said Apple won't do
There is little doubt that the introduction of the original iPhone in 2007 spearheaded the mobile phone revolution that we are witnessing in real time. That soapy thingy was Steve Jobs' dream about carrying an always-connected Apple computer in your pocket at all times coming to fruition, and it apparently was exactly what users had been waiting for, judging from the winning crusade of smartphones around the globe.
