Apple’s iPhone was introduced by Steve Jobs at Macworld San Francisco back on 9 January 2007. The product had been rumored for years and it would takes many years more before Steve Jobs would tell the world that the interface technology now known as Apple Multi-touch, was first developed for a iPad-like device (tablet) but that the decision was made to focus on a smartphone rather than a tablet due to the market’s poor update on Microsoft Windows tablets.

If readers will recall, Steve Jobs poo-pooed the idea of Apple making a tablet device, citing that people didn’t want to handwrite on devices like the Newton and Microsoft Windows tablets. He explained this to Walt Mossberg in 2003 during the first All Thing D conference. In any case, Apple took that technology and put it into the iPhone and the rest is history. We will learn later this month just how much Apple ruled Christmas 2014 in the smartphone wars.

Registration Open: AIA National Atlanta

The AIA National Convention takes place in Atlanta, 14 – 16 May 2015, and registration is now open to members and non-members of the institute. President Bill Clinton will be keynoting the event. It should be a really exciting year for the American Institute of Architects in 2015.

The link to the registration page at the AIA is here. Early bird registration for AIA members is 500.USD, which is less than the one day nonmember price of 575.USD.
