Happy Birthday iPhone. Here Are 8 Things You Killed!

Seven years ago Steve Jobs unveiled a product that changed the world. Since then it has been updated with features which makes it the only thing you need to carry, so lets take a stroll down grave-lane…

1. Road Maps

Remember when one person was in charge of the A-Z book as your mum/dad drove? Or when you printed out directions and had someone keep an eye on the junction numbers as you drove down the motorway? Those days are gone, now everyone relies on their GPS. Though if you’re using Apple Maps, you might want to carry an A-Z just in case.

2. Table Manners

When was the last time you sat at the dining table and actually had a conversation? No time these days as there’s food to Instagram and Tweets to read.

3. BlackBerry

Hands up if you own one! Anybody. Even Alicia Keys’ super creative role couldn’t help the company.

4. Alarm Clocks

Why would you want your ears to bleed with an annoying beep every morning, when you can wake up to your favourite song of the moment?

5. Point and Shoot Cameras

Gone are the days when you carry a camera around on a lanyard with the velcro case. Now many just use their phones for convenience and ease - especially when they’re just as good and allow on the spot editing.

6. The iPod

They kind of shot themselves in the foot as iPod sales have been on the decline for the last 3 years - but many are opting for the iPhone and iPad instead so Apple are still winning.

7. Our Attention Span

Wait, what were we talking about again?

8. I Forgot My iPhone

This is our life.
