Apple sells its billionth iPhone

Editor’s note: When I was the Editor of CNET News, we arranged for Steve Jobs to make a personal visit. In a wide-ranging discussion, he spelled this out in an hours long meeting. I don’t think we thought it would be this transformative. A real shout out to the “product side” of American businesses.

“At an employee meeting in Cupertino this morning, CEO Tim Cook announced that Apple recently sold the billionth iPhone.

“‘iPhone has become one of the most important, world-changing and successful products in history. It’s become more than a constant companion. iPhone is truly an essential part of our daily life and enables much of what we do throughout the day,’ said Cook. ‘Last week we passed another major milestone when we sold the billionth iPhone. We never set out to make the most, but we’ve always set out to make the best products that make a difference. Thank you to everyone at Apple for helping change the world every day.'”
