Five years ago – something came out that I had literally been waiting for for years. Now five years later – I am still using the original iPhone. My friends laugh at me, give me all kinds of slack, but at the end of the day – I use it still because it is such an amazing piece of technology that really was a game changer. Touch screen, swiping, scrolling…this was all new and exciting with the release. While I am still forced to run iOS 3.2 and cannot download and play Angry Birds – I am still able to use it for most things (even it if is a little slow) as well as attract all sorts of comments about it’s age.
While, I get a lot of grief for still using this iPhone – it will soon be a part of my great Apple collection and I will always look at it with the amazement I did when I first bought it. Happy Birthday iPhone!
PS – I will get purchasing the next iPhone when it likely comes out this fall.
