Maybe you went through the whole day not knowing that today marked the anniversary of the launch of the original Apple iPhone. I'm sure you won't lose any sleep over it, but it has been an amazing journey. Like it or hate it, you can't deny the overwhelming success it is. It's good to see Cricket hop on the Apple train. It shows they are continuing to make progress. I just hope this doesn't hurt Android lovers.


Visualized: The iPhone five years after launch

In case you somehow missed it, today is an
important milestone

in technology nostalgia: it's the fifth anniversary of the
original iPhone's

launch. We'll let you explore the memories of
that insane day

on your own terms, but ComScore has produced a visual breakdown of just how ownership has grown and shifted over the years. It's not hard to see that adoption has been on an accelerating curve, especially after the 2010 launch of the Retina display-toting
iPhone 4

: as of this past May, about three quarters of owners have either the iPhone 4 or the
iPhone 4S

. And the 2007 edition? Only two percent of all iPhone owners are still actively holding on to the aluminum-clad debut model, which suggests most would rather have Siri than reminisce. Whether you're a fan or have
since moved on

to a competitor, the chart is a reminder of just how far one of
Steve Jobs'

biggest projects has come.
