Ahhh I knew it was too good to be true! The only good thing to come from Apple since the 1980s – the iPod – wasn’t thought up by Apple, but by an Englishman who in 1979 couldn’t raise the venture capital needed to renew his patent!

And no… he isn’t going to see a cent from Apple for it, apart from the consultancy fees it took to fly him to California to testify it was indeed his expired patent.
