    What do you think about the results of this poll?

    Brits vote iPhone 8th greatest invention - Apple 2.0 - Fortune Tech

    It lists top 100 greatest inventions, I'll list the first 10 and take a good look at number 8, and what it's sitting in between.

    1. Wheel
    2. Aeroplane
    3. Light bulb
    4. Internet
    5. PCs
    6. Telephone
    7. Penicillin
    8. iPhone
    9. Flushing toilet
    10. Combustion engine

    Agree? Disagree?

    Now, I love my iPhone- but I love my flushing toilet more, thats for sure.

    Um no! Aside from the fact that it just plain isn't worthy of that high of a spot, the iPhone is a conglomeration of a number of things that are lower on the list. Without those things the iPhone would not even exist. Therefore it can't be higher on the list.

    Looking at that list though, I can only conclude that the Brits are f'd up anyway...lol!

    iPhone simply combined techs. Invented nothing.

    I think they messed up. One being the lowest, not the best. There is no way the iPhone can be the number 8 best invention.

    If its reliable, pc finally beat mac lol.

    Other than that, I do like flushing toilets better. Also, wouldn't sliced bread be the first? Remember the saying "that's the greatest invention since sliced bread!" Lol.

    Myth busters should "debunk" this.

    That list is a joke LOL. There's no way a smartphone should be #8 on the greatest inventions ever. But it is a good read though. But I would think flushing toilets, toilet paper, cars and refridgerators should be higher on list since those are things we'd probably have a much harder time living without

    LOL... I don't think the iphone or any smartphone should be on a list of greats invention...maybe the cell phone in general. Flushing toilets is pretty big..... I would prefer to have one of those over any phone LOL

    Well... Baths aren't really an invention...

    It's an activity or action.

    Like brushing your teeth-

    Toothbrushes, or bathtubs on the other hand....

    The iPhone should not be on that list period. The cellphone in general should, but not the iPhone.
