Assorted links (Apple iPhone edition)

Although we’re a day late, 29 June 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the launching of the original Apple iPhone.* To honor this occasion, here are some useful links:

1. Tyler Cowen’s essay in praise of the iPhone: Put down the iPhone and appreciate its genius.

2. Adam Greenfield’s critique: A sociology of the smartphone.

3. Steve Jobs’s original iPhone presentation from January 2007.

* Full disclosure: I drafted this blog post on my Apple iPhone 5s. That I was able to access the Internet, link to various sources, and track down and post a picture — in a matter of minutes and on such a small and portable device — is remarkable.
