Time nominates iPhone as the most influential gadget of all time.

Time magazine’s list of the most important electronic devices was topped by Apple’s iPhone. Notably, Apple seems to have taken a few more spots with Macintosh coming in third and iPod coming in 9th.

The list is quite eclectic, spanning a substantial time period, putting the 1900’s Kodak’s Brownie camera at eight and Sony Walkman at 4. Curiously it turns out that Kodak’s camera cost a whopping $1 back in the day, with the manufacturer planning to make more money on selling film.

Other products on the list include iPad (number 25) and Apple’s original candy-colored iBook (38), which was the first notebook computer to offer Wi-Fi. There are also several consoles from Atari, Nintendo, and Sony occupying various spots.

Time considers the iPhone as the first truly powerful computer in the pockets of millions of users. “Smartphones had technically existed for years, but none came together as accessibly and beautifully as the iPhone.”, Time writes.

On the subject of the Macintosh, Time reminds us of Steve Job’s introduction of the Mac, using the analogy of George Orwell’s 1984 to paint Big Blue (IBM) as a soulless machine, as contrasted to the friendly Macintosh.
Time wrote: “High costs and Microsoft’s successful Windows software conspired to keep the Mac a perennial runner-up,”. “But it forever set the standard for the way human beings interact with computers.”

The iPod took over the world of digital music, paving the way for our current streaming options. Like the iPhone, the iPod didn’t invent the MP3 player, but it made being digital easy.
“The iPod’s importance extends far beyond music,” writes Time. “It was an entire generation’s introduction to Apple’s easy-to-use products and slick marketing.”

It’s fascinating to see so many Apple products here, mixed in with the Nintendo’s NES, the electronic calculator, and the Transistor Radio. We are all looking forward to what the future might bring, with autonomous cars, VR and 3D printing being just some of the things Apple could market and design just right.

Every editor knows the difficulty of working under the pressure of time. Sometimes we just have little time to polish every aspect of our project, leave alone creating custom openers, logo and typography animations and footage transitions. We have to use third-party plugins and outside sources to make our edit interesting and engaging, but those are often complicated, slow to render and expensive.
