iPhone is 25 years old

You may think that the iPhone and the iPad are very modern day inventions, but according to a new interview with Apple CEO Steve Jobs, the initial idea came more than 25 years ago.

Talking to Playboy, (yes Playboy) back in 1985 the electronics emperor said that he had predicted that mobile computers combined with a portable phone would be common place and that was the direction he wanted to push towards. Speaking like a nerdy Nostradamus, Jobs said, ‘the developments will be in making the products more portable, networking them.’

Fast-forward 25 years and BOOM! Everyone has a mobile phone and the vast majority of them are smartphones with the internet. Still no signs of that hoverboard though Steve. Come on, pull your finger out man!
