Oops! Apple didn’t invent the iPod!

    The man drew a picture and came up with a concept. But he did not invent the iPod. He invented the idea of a music player (note Sony might have something to say about it too), and it’s not even that close to an iPod as far as controls. He did obviously not create the internals. So he did not invent the iPod.

    He was paid a consultancy fee by Apple to testify. But they portray him a s a poor schmuck who can’t afford a house. It’s sad that he couldn’t get his company off the ground and his patents expired. But Saying he invented the iPod based on a drawing is like saying a kid invented space flight because he drew rocket ships in the second grade.
