The original iPhone introduced by Steve Jobs was a game changer in every respect. In addition to a revolutionary new interface, Apple’s first-gen iPhone also ushered in a new era of smartphone hardware design. Before long, the design aesthetic of the original iPhone — a rectangular device with a large multitouch display — became the blueprint for all other smartphones.

In fact, Bloomberg says that even SolarCity — the solar power supplier that’s chaired by Tesla CEO Elon Musk — won’t be supporting the 7kWh version of the Powerwall when it launches. More →
