iPhone is here

Jobs unveiled the iPhone to the public on January 9, 2007, at the Macworld 2007 convention at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The two initial models, a 4 GB model priced at US$499 and an 8 GB model at US$599 (both requiring a 2-year contract), went on sale in the United States on June 29, 2007, at 6:00 pm local time, while hundreds of customers lined up outside the stores nationwide.

In the US, the iPhone holds the largest share of the smartphone market. As of late 2015, the iPhone had a 43.6% market share, followed by Samsung (27.6%), LG (9.4%), and Motorola (4.8%).

The iPhone’s commercial success has been credited with reshaping the smartphone industry and helping to make Apple one of the world’s most valuable publicly traded companies by 2011. The original iPhone was one of the first phones to use a design featuring a slate format with a touchscreen interface. Almost all modern smartphones have replicated this style of design.

    Image result for bose qc35

    Strengths: • Noise-cancelling. That’s why I bought QC35 instead of SoundLink Around-Ear II. It works perfectly and keep all sounds at distance from me. • Wireless connection. That helps a lot when I’m walking outside. • Battery life. Headphones usually live one week from one charge in mixed use of wireless and wired mode. • Weight. It’s very, very light. My friend use Beats Studio when I wore them after a week of Bose use I felt like I have a metal band on my head. • Case. This case protects headphones very reliably. I’m not afraid to put them in my backpack and took them out broken.

    Weaknesses: • It’s a bug: when I switch from on to off during playing song sound quality turns very bad for few seconds.
