Not much to say about this, but 16 years ago the iPhone was introduced at MacWorld Expo 2007.
I was a recent Mac convert at the time after using Windows through the dark ’90s of the Mac. In 2006, Macs started using Intel processors which meant I could still run Windows when I needed, so I switched back.
I was a dedicated Palm user, using Missing Sync to get contacts and calendars and stuff onto my phones. I was intrigued by the iPhone, but wasn’t totally sold. I was perfectly happy with my Palm Treo 700 and my iPod Nano.
Launch day came and went. I didn’t buy a phone, despite my love of the Mac and iPod. But then I started seeing people around me using iPhones and started getting the itch.
I finally broke down and bought one on Halloween.
