How the iPhone “Literally Changed My Life”

Do you remember buying your first iPhone? Installing your first app from the App
Store? Jailbreaking for the first time?

Although it can been called melodrama, there
comes a point where you look back and see the profound impact technology has had
on your life. Besides amazing technology, Apple products have always been a
source of inspiration. The iPhone has literally changed the course of people’s
lives, and that’s something special…

The folks at Macgasm have linked to an
article that was written by one their writers on her personal blog. Lucy talks
about how “Getting an iPhone Literally Changed My Life.”

An
excerpt:

“Buying an iPhone saw me board a train I’d never been a passenger
on. Actually, I should say an aeroplane, as the other passengers were from all
over the world. I threw myself into a whole new community of people, all sharing
one common interest — the iPhone and Apple in general. I felt like I was flying
in first class, discussing this marvellous, high end device with like minded
people, learning new things and sharing tips and tricks. I’m not going to lie, I
felt, and still feel great about the circles I talk in.

I seriously
cannot imagine what I would be doing with my evenings now if I had gotten any
other phone.”

This article reminded us of why we do what we do here
at Ultrasn0w. When we started the site in 2008, we had no clue it would reach
the level of influence it now does. And as the site continues to grow, we’re
reminded of how the iPhone has (corny as it sounds) really changed
everything.

Think about all of the conversations you’ve had about the
iPhone; or perhaps you’ve made a few friends that you wouldn’t have met if it
wasn’t for the iPhone’s influence.

If it wasn’t for the iPhone, I
wouldn’t be writing this and you wouldn’t be reading it. Ultrasn0w and all of
the other great Apple sites on the internet wouldn’t exist, and there wouldn’t
be such a an amazing community of geeks and iPhone-lovers.

How has the
iPhone changed your life?
