Jan 9, 2007: Remembering Steve Jobs’ Greatest Keynote Presentation

On January 9, 2007 Steve Jobs Introduced the iPhone to the world at Macword 2007 ( iPhone went on Sale in the United States on June 29, 2007). Apple redefined the way the smart-phones should work on that historic day. The keynote was Steve Jobs’ greatest presentation and he had that self-satisfied smirk of a man who knew that the product he was introducing to the world was way ahead of the competition. Great men help create great products that that outlives them and Steve Jobs created not one but many during his life-time. 

Macworld 2007 Keynote (iPhone Introduction):

P.S. Apple and Google were partners at the time and this keynote bought back some painful reminders of how Trojan Horse Eric Schmidt (Then an Apple Board Member) and Google backstabbed Apple by introducing Android in 2008. Early Android Prototypes looked like Blackberry phones but Google later decided to shamelessly copy the core concepts of iPhone because it was way ahead of what RIM was doing at the time. I’ll never forgive Google for betraying Apple.
