In 2007, Steve Jobs took the stage to describe Apple's newest creation. He began by announcing Apple was introducing three blockbuster technologies: "a widescreen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough internet communications device."

As the crowd cheered, Jobs announced in fact, those technologies would be encompassed in a single device. As he said, "Today, Apple is going to reinvent the phone."

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the now-ubiquitous cell phone. And whether you love or hate Apple products, there's no doubt that the iPhone has changed the way we live.
