6 Things That Weren't Around When 'The Ellen Show' First Aired

A few days ago, Ellen DeGeneres announced that she was unsure of the future of her show, "The Ellen Show." The show first aired on September 8, 2003. That's a whole 15 years of "The Ellen Show" being around. I can't remember a life without Ellen, and many things were invented and introduced to the world after the show, but just how many things?

1. The iPhone


The first iPhone was officially announced on January 9, 2007, and released on June 29, 2007.
