In a year that gave us the prosthetic X-Finger for amputees, the pollution-reducing Diesel Exhaust Purification System, and hurricane-safety ImpactShield, is the iPhone really worthy of its Time magazine Invention of the Year honors
? That's the question raised by iPhone Matter's Gregory Ng
. Ng points out that although the iPhone is pretty and we love it to pieces, that other extremely worthy advances were overlooked by Time. His post raises a good question although I think of Time's "of the year" awards more as an entertainment/ lifestyle feature than as real news.
