I’ll save you the hassle. The iPhone didn’t make the cut.

So, can we stop with the ‘greatest invention of mankind’ now?

Thank you.

  1. What, the Jesus Phone didn’t make the cut??!!?!?! How could it be that the phone that solved world hunger, world peace and restored a sense of childlike wonder to adults lives around the galaxy? Oh wait, that’s the second version that includes 3G, holds more than 8 gigs, allows third party apps, and is unlocked….

    Other beef’s with the list-
    The CD? No. The record or magnetic tape which allowed music to be recorded, sure. The casette tape which allowed music to be truly portable (sorry 8 tracks only brought recorded music to the car) or even Digital Audio Players which have thrown the music industry on their ear…

    SMS makes the list – but not the Telegraph?
