This is pointless click-bait, made even more obvious by putting iPhone on the top. Why isn't the QWERTY keyboard the most influential gadget of all time? The beloved iPhones still use QWERTY, no? Why isn't telephone itself at the top? That's what connected the world, no? How about telegram, the precursor to both internet and telephone? "Gadget" and "most influential" are both loosely defined terms. The sole purpose of this article was to somehow get iPhone to the top.

"We do not believe that courts should seek to resolve issues of 21st century technology with a law that was written in the era of the adding machine," he said. Smith also warned of this particular case setting precedent for others in the technology industry. "Every case has implications for others," he said. The spectacle didn't go unnoticed. Before the hearing moved onto other topics, Smith was asked "Do you have any other props?"
