10 years ago on 10 January 2007, Steve Jobs dazzled the world with the very first iPhone. Despite the fact that the presentation could have gone very wrong, it went off without a hitch. How did the world react to that historic day? Let's take a look back in time, when tweets looked like old-school Facebook statuses and Apple keynotes went online as Quicktime presentations:
