Apple sued by man who claims he invented iPhone in 1992
The iPhone went on sale nine years ago today, and to mark the momentous occasion a Florida man is suing Apple for a whopping $10 billion and 1.5 percent of all future Apple earnings — because he claims to have come up with the idea for Apple’s breakthrough mobile device all way back in 1992.
Seriously crazy patent lawsuit. Someone needs to overhaul patents to stop the costly and pointless money grabbing law suits. More at Cult of Mac.
