In some circles the iPhone was referred to as the Jesus Phone, and if seemed a bit hyperbolic, you need to watch footage from the launch event, which took place at Macworld on January 9, 2007.  “I’ve been waiting for this moment for two-and-a-half years,” Steve Jobs began. “Every once in a while, a revolutionary product comes along … that changes everything.”

It did.
