Remember back when being a part of mainstream media meant something? Respect, dignity, hard work, research, fact checking, deadlines and so on. Ahh those were the days, but my how times have changed; especially when it comes to the cell phone industry. They just don’t get it. Kind of makes you wonder what else they’re missing, no? Anyway, we’re now quite pleased to present to you the iPhone G3. Mmm. Found within a TIME Magazine photo essay entitled The Long Odyssey of the Cell Phone, the iPhone G3 is apparently a very important part of mobile history. Quite a retrospective. We’re also very impressed with the fact that TIME recognizes the long and storied journey that mobile technology has taken – so much so that it has been captured in a total of 14 slides. Good show fellas, top drawer.
