These days, there seems to be one conspiracy theory after another. The legendary Moby has recently elaborated on one of the world’s potentially best-kept secrets – you’re definitely going to want to read what he had to share…
The American musician has always had a knack for changing the world one step at a time. He is one of the most recognized rights activists, notably for his long-term veganism, and AllMusic considers him to be “one of the most important dance music figures of the early 1990s, helping bring the music to a mainstream audience both in the UK and in America”. His dedicated followers may appreciate his impressive accomplishments, although they may not realize to what extent that he has impacted the globe today.
In a recent interview with the Guardian, the record producer elaborated that he invented the iPhone, introducing this fact by stating “I’m hesitant to talk about this because it sounds either like nonsense, or self-aggrandizing.”
Back in 2003, when Apple launched iTunes, senior staff member Jimmy Dickson was tipped off by the well-known photographer that the growing business should release its very own MP3 player in tandem. Although it was a groundbreaking idea, the now multi-billion dollar company had previously found failure and were allegedly not fond of the idea.
“A year or two later they brought me to a hotel room at the Crosby in New York, handed me the first iPod and said: “Steve wanted you to have this”. I said: “You do know at some point this is going to have a camera and a phone attached to it?” And they laughed at me and said that could never happen.”
Fast forward a few years, on June 29, 2007, the first-generation iPhone was released.
Although some ideas may seem outrageous, they are often the most important. Although there technically isn’t any proof that Moby is, in fact, the mastermind behind the revolutionary device, who are we to say that he isn’t.
Have you ever had an out-of-the-box idea, but were too late to execute it yourself? If so, what was it and what prevented you from launching the product?
