5 years ago, The Guardian predicted massive failure for the iPhone

Guardian 5 Years Ago Today

It happens to every journalist who is willing to go out on a limb and take a chance with reporting. We all make bad predictions, listen to the wrong experts, or report on something that turns out to be false, such as when we predicted a year ago that Facebook would be the worst tech IPO in history (wait, that one came true).

This one by stalwart and venerable The Guardian turned out to be a doozy on many levels. Check out the original article on this, the five year anniversary of the first iPhone sold.
