The iPhone turned five today.

Here's the 14850today coverage: Apple's iPhone hits Ithaca with a bang

And here are the naysayers. One fun example:

December 07, 2006, CNET, Michael Kanellos
“Apple is slated to come out with a new phone… And it will largely fail…. Sales for the phone will skyrocket initially. However, things will calm down, and the Apple phone will take its place on the shelves with the random video cameras, cell phones, wireless routers and other would-be hits… When the iPod emerged in late 2001, it solved some major problems with MP3 players. Unfortunately for Apple, problems like that don’t exist in the handset business. Cell phones aren’t clunky, inadequate devices. Instead, they are pretty good. Really good.”
