After three decades of year-after-year innovation, it would be hard to remember any company that has had a better fiscal year than Apple in 2007.

iPhone Time Honored

For those of us who follow the tech and specifically gadget industry closely, Time's recent announcement that the iPhone represents 2007's invention of the year comes as little surprise.

From Sucker to Millionaire?

Just how much do you think early iPhone buyers deserve in the wake of Apple's decision to drop its price $200 so soon after launch? $100? $200? How about a million buckaroos? That's exactly what one early iPhone buyer seems to believe she's owed, ... seeing as she is currently suing Apple for the rather Regis-like amount. What makes this woman think she's owed so much? Dongmei Li, a New York resident, says she waited four long hours on a hot July day to purchase the 4GB iPhone. She did so just three days after launch, meaning she got the PS3-like price ($599) and not the Xbox 360-like ($399) ... (view more)

At a question-and-answer session in Florida last Saturday, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak criticized his former partner's decision to cut the price of the iPhone. Apple had dropped the price by $200 just two month's after the device's long-awaited ... arrival -- a bad decision, according to Wozniak.
