5 Ways iPhone Changed Our Lives

This is an older article from about a year and a half ago but it points out some very interesting things. The iPhone has essentially changed society and the way we do things. 10 years ago we could not access the internet from any location and with the simple touch of a button. iPhones(and other smartphones) have also essentially made the GPS obsolete. What’s the point of buying a big bulky GPS for 100 dollars when this application is built in to all of the smartphones created today? “The iPhone’s popularity as a portable gaming device — oh, how we love flinging virtual birds at virtual pigs! — also helped usher in a new era of mobile gaming. Five years after the iPhone hit the market — and the culture — the tech industry as a whole is thriving and innovating. It probably won’t be another five years before the next big thing shakes up technology again.”

  1. This is a nice article reminding us of our addiction/reliance on the internet. The iPhone (and all smartphones) has and continues to push technological innovation. Phones are comparable to computers now, and I can only imagine what’s to come in the future.

  2. I am totally reliant on my iPhone. Its my number one when it comes to gps navigation and weather updates; besides using it for communication obviously 🙂

  3. After reading the article, I began thinking of how flip phones were what everyone wanted and not a brick. Trying to get on the internet with any phone before the Iphone came out sucked. The Iphone really flipped the cellphone industry around. Bringing back the brick and making life seem easier with the touch of an app.
