There is no doubt that the iPhone is innovative (heck, even ComputerWorld thinks so
), and there is also no doubt that David Pogue, New York Times tech columnist, is a big fan of Apple's products. It should come as a surprise to no one, then, that Pogue has included the iPhone on his list of the most important new features
in tech of 2007 (the 'Pogies,' as he calls them). Note that this list highlights breakthrough features, and not innovative devices as such.Visual Voicemail
, one of the iPhone's signature features, was given the nod as the best new feature of 2007. I can't argue with Pogue on this one, Visual Voicemail has really helped me out (and I don't even get that much voicemail. I'm a sad, unpopular man).
What features in Apple's products do you think are the most innovative this year? Personally, I think Quick Look
in Leopard is truly a marvel of technology.
