“The iPhone is not only the best selling mobile phone but also the best selling music player, the best selling camera, the best selling video screen and the best selling computer of all time,” Horace Dediu writes for Asymco.

“It is that because it is so much more than a product. It is an enabler for change. It unleashed forces which we are barely able to perceive, let alone control,” Dediu writes. “It changed the world because it changed us.”
Dediu writes, “And it did all that in less than nine years.”
