FCC Says iPhone OK For Public Consumption


Our long, national nightmare is over: The FCC has approved the iPhone, which means that nothing is holding back the miracle device’s release other than software issues so titanic that people got pulled off of Leopard development to fix it. Yep, all hurdles cleared.

At the product’s intro, Steve Jobs said he was taking the unusual stance of announcing the iPhone early so that the FCC wouldn’t do it for him. So mark this day — in an alternate universe where Steve doesn’t believe in early announcements, even if it means screwing over the FCC, this would be the day that news of the iPhone broke. Can you even imagine how different 2007 would have been without all our wildest iPhone rumors confirmed.
