UPDATE: This Time article makes a similar point - "Apple's new iPhone could do to the cell phone market what the iPod did
to the portable music player market: crush it pitilessly beneath the
weight of its own superiority. This is unfortunate for anybody else who
makes cell phones, but it's good news for those of us who use them."
