Before he co-founded connected device company Nest, Tony Fadell worked at Apple and lead the teams behind its iPod and its first iPhone devices. Fadell looks back on those days in a newly published interview.
Of course, that music player turned out to be an iPod and changed both the music and tech industries. Later came the idea for Apple to make a phone. Fadell stated:
The final result was the iPhone, which included a touchscreen display that first came about when Apple tried to develop a touchscreen Mac. Fadell said:
I have been writing professionally about technology and gaming news for 14 years.
Perfect example of how it takes time and many failures before you might succeed!
Fadell must be bloody tired of talking about the iPod. ;)
