The WSJ has posted a photo of the secret room at Apple where the original iPhone's software was born.

The secret meeting room where most of the design decisions for the original iPhone’s software were made is “hallowed ground” to Greg Christie, who designs the software interface for Apple products and one of the first members recruited to work on the device in 2004.

The windowless room was lit by fluorescent lights hanging from the ceiling. The walls had signs of water damage from a flood in an adjacent bathroom and there were a few images put up including one of Apple’s “Think Different” posters of famous graphic designer Paul Rand and another of a large chicken running around without its head.

Christie offered some insight to the WSJ on the creation of the original iPhone yesterday. In the photo below you can see a system Apple rigged together to run early prototypes of the iPhone's software. A plastic touchscreen device codenamed 'Wallaby' was hooked up to an outdated Mac to replicate the slower speeds of the phone's hardware.

Take a look!

The room where Sam scum pee.e.o. originated from creating me to be paid by them to state rants as much as I wanted just to use his strategy of showing my feeling when I nor him worries about the innowaition for the plastic toy products. Because we wait for apple to innovate and follow them.

Why in earth does Apple's most forward thinking room have a G3 and a coily cabled handset. This makes my mother's house look like Futurama. There is no future conversations here, only reminiscing and nostalgia.
